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 Afternoon Everyone!
 I want to share
with you the last of the three new publications
that were shipped to shoppes and distributors
a few days ago.
"Be Truly Thankful"
What a wonderful time of the year and it is fast
approaching.  Just enough time though to stitch
this quick design and have it ready for your
Fall displays.  Everyone at the Sullivan household
is even more thankful this year.  Cannot wait to
see little Avery at our Thanksgiving table.
Also, wanted to share with you that I have a design
in both the new publications from
~~ Just Cross Stitch ~~ 
Halloween Collection Book
the 20ll Christmas Ornaments Magazine.
The pre-finished stocking was designed
and made by Olde Colonial Designs. 
They should be available at your shoppe.
If not, you may get them from me.
Both of these publications are the bargain of
the year.  Filled with dozens of unique
designs for your stitching pleasure.  You
won't be disappointed!
I hope you are having a great day.  I am playing
catch up around here ~ printing publications, working
on new ones, working on some special things
for the Online Show in October, etc.  Never a dull
moment.  I hope to have time this weekend to
update my ETSY site.  Many of you have asked 
where the new things are.  I just haven't had
time to do it.  If you want something though
all you have to do is a Conversation on the
ETST site or call/email me.  It is never a 
Be back soon.
Many Happy Stitches,
