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".

Another Little Look

Good Saturday Morning!!
Hollis and Paul wanted to take Avery to the
Pumpkin Patch today, but so much for that idea.
The weather here is just horrible, raining now 
with a chance of snow.  The mountains of
Virginia are definitely getting snow.  I keep
trying to remind myself that it really is fall.
Here are a few of my minimalist ideas of
decorating this year.  Christmas decorating 
will be better - I hope.

Never did find my white pumpkins.  I found
one tiny one at Walmart, can you believe that,
and being a good MOM, I gave it to Hollis.
Looks great in her bathroom.
Still hoping to find some before Thanksgiving.
Before I get to my little peak for you, wanted to
share the most adorable hat on the most adorable
baby.  Don't you think he would have been a hit at the
Pumpkin Patch?  Cannot wait to share his
Halloween costume.  Stay tuned for that.
Now for the reveal.  This is 
So sweet, so cute, so prim, and so
quick.  I hope you will love them.
These will be available soon with
some more "quickies" for your
Christmas decorating and giving.
If you are in my part of the world, try to stay
dry and warm.  The coffee will definitely be
flowing today.  I have to finish my last two
publications to go out next week and move on
to the next.
Many Happy Stitches,
