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".

Good Evening Everyone!
I'm sorry to say there will be no "Fancy Friday"
this week.  Lehmer and I will be leaving early
tomorrow morning for Richmond.  Hollis and
Paul will be closing on their new home in the
morning, so we will start the moving process
tomorrow.  The big move with all of their
help and big truck will be on Saturday.  We
are so happy for them.  A new house and a
new baby all in one year.  I just hope our old
bones and muscles (meaning Lehmer and I) can 
make it through another move.  I am mostly in
charge of the new kitchen, - cleaning, shelf paper,
putting away, etc.  Not too labor intensive so I
think I will be OK.  
So this won't be such a boring post, I am going
to give you a little "sneak peak" of something
that will be on the Online Needlework Show.
Bird 'N Blossoms Pin Cushion
Bird Pin Cushion Box
Both of these will be available on the Online Show.
I hope you will all go visit.  There are many designers
and other companies with "wares" for the needle arts.
I do not think you will be disappointed.
I hope you have a weekend filled with "Many Happy
Stitches".  Mine won't be, but that is OK.  
Moving is always exciting.


  1. Safe journey to you and family, hope Lehmer takes it real slow and easy. We've a fresh tube of Bengay to share, just say the word:)

  2. Your don't have a Fancy Friday but you tease us with a snippet of exciting things to come. It is okay. It is really hard as I promised myself no new cross stitch patterns this year. What am I to do? I'm sure I will figure it out.

    Have a safe trip this weekend helping your family move.

  3. I found your blog and website at the Online Needlework Show.

    Lovely stitching!!
