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".

Time To Share

Good Evening Everyone!!
I just couldn't wait another minute to let you see a little
bit of Mary Lamin's Lord's Prayer Sampler.   It is not
quite finished.  Candi Smith, an absolutely fantastic
stitcher, did all of the sampler with the exception of
a few colors that I couldn't decide on when it was
time to send it her way.  I am so happy with it.  It
is so special in so many ways. 
So without further delay, here is a peak.  I hope
   this will be published within the month, certainly 
no later than early June.  For all of you who
have been waiting for so long, I think you will agree 
that it was worth the wait.
I wish I could give you a definite date, but so many
things keep getting in the way of working.  Today
I went back to Northern Virginia for another Doctor
appointment.  It really eats up the better part of a
day.  The good thing today was that Lehmer drove 
me so I was able to do a little stitching in the car. 
Having to go twice a week so far away is really a
hassle, but hopefully it will pay off in the end.  I
will admit that I am feeling a little better.   Yeah!!
Have a great night with "Many Happy Stitches,"


  1. This looks very interesting. Can't wait to see it - soon!

  2. I'm not sure this is a "share"...looks more like a temptation. Can't wait to see the finish!

    Hope you are feeling better and better every day!

  3. Seeing that much makes me anxious for the full reveal. I love the colors!

  4. Beautiful sneak peek; I'm glad that you're feeling a little better and hope it'll be a lot better soon. :)

  5. It's really beautiful, looking forward to seeing it all of it.

  6. This one definitely looks like it will be worth the wait!! I'm anxious to see more!
