Welcome to my blog. I'm probably very much like all of you who love the needlearts. My life revolves around family, friends, home and all things that help to make for a more contented life. When time allows; cooking, gardening, decorating, and collecting are my joys. I look forward to sharing all of these things with you. I also hope to keep you up to date on what is going on at Homespun Elegance, in regard to the needlework designs and the "Plain & Fancy Wares" that we offer.

Wishing you "Many Happy Stitches".

No Greater Love

Good Afternoon Everyone!
In December I showed you a picture of
Hollis with her big brother Cameron
in front of the Christmas tree. 
 For obvious
reasons, that was the most wonderful
Christmas ever.  She came early, but
was healthy and perfect, so we had
much to celebrate.
Well, now we have another reason to
celebrate.  That little girl in the basket
will be using that basket in a few months.
We are all going to be blessed with
a new little one.  We are beyond 
thankful and overjoyed. 
Lehmer and I have been looking forward
to this for so long.  We cannot wait.
Thanks for letting me go on and on.
Unfortunately, for my business, I am
having a really hard time keeping my
mind on stitching.  I keep thinking of
baby designs.  So guess what you'll
be seeing in the future.  
I promise to let you see new designs
really soon.  Maybe even this weekend.
Many Happy Stitches,
