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".

Family News

Good Evening Everyone!
I hope all is well with everyone.   It has been such
a long time since I visited with you.  Things are 
doing fairly well with Hollis and Avery.  There 
have been a few bumps in the road, but things are getting 
better.  I am back in Fredericksburg for a little visit only,
so I needed to touch base with all of you.
If you will bear with me, I want to brag a little 
about our son, Cameron.  Here is a picture of the
proud uncle with baby Avery.
Recently, someone found his photography on
his Flickr account and one of his pictures was
shown on Fox News.  Because of that, a
gallery in New Jersey contacted him about
a showing of his work.  How exciting
for him.  He has thought about trying to sell
his work at art shows, but just never got around
to it.  It forced him to think about pricing,
framing, etc.  A little stressful when you have
never done anything like this before.  
Anyway, I just wanted to share.  This is the
picture that was on Fox News - Air France 
descending over the beach at St. Martin.
If you would like to read more about the Gallery
Showing and his other works, go to
When you get to the Gallery page, click on Future
Exhibits and then on Cameron Sullivan.
Here is another one of my favorites ~
We are so excited and happy for him.  
Way to go Cameron!!!!!!
I promise to be back soon with many new
designs.  Christmas is coming so we must
get our Christmas stitching started.
Many Happy Stitches,


  1. Oh....I'm so excited for Cameron!! AWESOME honor!! And his photos are, indeed, amazing!! Will look for him as a new shining star in the sky!! Wising you a Sunday filled with blessings ~ Robin

  2. Cameron obviously inherited his mother's artistic eye, Sandra!! That is so exciting for him and I see why his photo caught the eye of the gallery owner--it is amazing!

    And what a great photo of him and little Avery :)

  3. What an opportunity - being recognized for doing what you love - doesn't get better than that.
