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".

New Stuff!

 Good Evening Everyone!
I'm beginning to feel like the person who
"cries wolf", but after another visit to the
Doctor today, there just cannot be many more
 days left.  Hollis' due date is July 27th -
Consequently, I have decided to release my
last two designs in "A Halloween Year" a
few weeks early.  Along with that will be
"Haunted Hill House".  I think we are all
thinking cool Autumn days anyway thanks 
to the incredible heat wave that we are
suffering through.
These publications will start shipping
tomorrow to our AUTOS and our 
"Haunted Hill House"
Features my new Brown-Dot
frame and Olde Brass "Star Pumpkin"
button.  Both sold separately.
 Features my "Ghost" charm and
Olde Brass "Star" button.  Both
sold separately.
"Not I"
Features my "Pumpkin" brass charm
and Olde Brass "Star" button.  Both
sold separately.
I hope you see something you like.  I really
hate to see the "Halloween Year" come to
a close.  It has been a fun collection.  I will
be starting a new collection sometime in
the coming months, but I haven't decided
on the theme yet.
Back to work to get these designs ready for
shipment.  Hope you have a great evening.
Many Happy Stitches,


  1. Sandra,
    These are so adorable! I just recently found myself stitching again and quickly fell in love with your Halloween designs that I found on "123 stitch"...so now I have quite a wish list!

  2. Great new designs!! Love them all, and if I finish up a few fall/Halloween patterns that I have here already, I may just have to pick up one or two (or three!)
    I hope your little one arrives soon! I can imagine how anxious you all are waiting to meet him!

  3. The Haunted Hill House is simply wonderful!

    Good luck with everything tomorrow!

  4. I'm sorry to see these Halloween designs end too! I've enjoyed them all so much and have purchased most of them. I love all of these new ones and will be getting my order in once they're available.
    Good luck to Hollis. I hope things go well for her.

  5. I just put in an order with Anita including your *House on Pumpkin Hill" Ornament yesterday! :D

    I already hunted through my stash to find the threads I had in stock for it and ordered the ones I didn't as well. I also prepared a ring with them on it and empty (but labeled) thread tags for those coming in.

    Basically, I'm really looking forward to it! :D

    Thinking of you and Hollis this week--Almost Time!

  6. Your newest Halloween designs are just delightful, Sandra :) We'll all be waiting anxiously for news of your new little grandson!!

  7. oooohhh! can't wait to stitch 'spooky', hehe....good luck and god speed your grandson to your arms!
