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".

More New Stuff

Good Morning Everyone!
Thank you so much for your wonderful
comments from the Online Show.  Please forgive
 me for not responding to all of them, but I so appreciate 
 the kind things you had to say.  If you had a question
or a request, I will certainly get back to you. The response 
to the Online Show has been great.  I hope you had a
 chance to visit.   Winners of the four drawings will be 
announced in a few days.
 We are so busy around
here!  Trying to get the new things ready for the
Online Show, gathering models and products to
send a trunk show to Celebration of Needlework, and
 shipping our Auto and new stuff to our distributors.
I am exhausted and we are not finished by any
means.  But before I get started on all of that, I
want to share with you my newest products.
"May You Be Blessed With Only The Best"
This is the second in my 
"Tokens Of Affection" collection.
"Oh To Be A Witch"
This is "May"of my
"A Halloween Year" collection.
"Sitting Pretty"
This is "April" of my 
"A Halloween Year" collection.
There are only two more left in this collection.
I would like your input on whether I should
continue for another year.  Halloween is so
popular, but I don't want to over do it.  Please
let me know what you think.  How about a 
sampler a month?  I think that might be fun.
There will be a "Fancy Friday" this week, so
stay tuned.
"Many Happy Stitches",


  1. I like the idea of a sampler a month but halloween designs are just as fun! Lots of women in my stitching group have stitched your halloween monthlies and would continue to do so.

  2. I do enjoy your Halloween patterns. Although personally, I'm feeling overwhelmed with seasonal stitching. Since I am a sampler stitcher, I would love to see a "sampler of the month"!

  3. I love the idea of a sampler a month -- especially if they are small and historic in style. I keep saying I am going to stitch a number of small samplers to make into ornaments for a small stitching Christmas tree. Would love it if you could "enable" me to do this.

  4. I love the idea of a sampler each month! The Halloween graphs have been great, but oh how I love samplers!

  5. I agree! A monthly sampler is a great idea. I love the idea of small ones for a sampler Christmas tree.

  6. The monthly Halloween patterns have been great, but I would do something else next. My suggestions for monthlies are small samplers, ornaments, or snowmen.
