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".

I'm Back From The Beach!

Hello Everyone!
I hope everyone had as wonderful a week as I have
had.  Building memories with my precious
grandson, Hollis, Paul, and Lehmer will be forever
cherished.  We played with Avery, ate wonderful food, 
played with Avery, sat on the beach, played with Avery,
put together a complicated puzzle, played with
Avery, sat on the deck looking at the ocean and
watching beautiful sunsets.  My only regret is that
it had to end.  I do have wonderful pictures to
show you.  I will only bore you with a few
special ones though.

Anyway I am back and I have to get back to
reality and that means I have to finish my new
designs and get them shipped this week.
Stockings 'A Plenty I
This is one of the three that will ship this week.  The
stockings are pre-finished for your stitching pleasure.
Note the tiny ornament tucked between the top
two stockings - another option for the designs.
I'll post pictures of the other two publications
sometime this week.
Nice to visit with you again.  
Many Happy Stitches,
