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!
Another beautiful Autumn day here in
Virginia.  A little on the chilly side and
more than a little windy.  It is snowing
leaves in our yard.  I really need to take a
picture of our yard when it is in leaf
overload.  Poor Lehmer, he spends 
so much time trying to get rid of the
leaves.  It is a thankless job, but thank
goodness for leaf blowers and that
he can blow them into our woods.
Bagging them is out of the question.
I have had requests for a complete 
viewing of my "Merry Birdies".  Since
I hope to release them later next week or
the beginning of the following week, I
decided to go ahead and show them to you.
  I do think they are cute and definitely a
 quick stitch.
"Merry Birdies"
Also, I know many of you are starting
to think about your Christmas 
shopping.  With that in mind, I decided
to do a Christmas scissor fob ~
"Santa Profile".
The heart is made out of wood and I have 
decoupaged it with one of my original
little paintings.  Nicely aged and sealed
for durability.  Waxed linen thread
is attached for your scissors.
Sorry, scissors not included!
Measures 2 5/8" high X 1 3/8" wide.
If you would like one of these, they
are $11.50, shipping included.
Just email or call.  We take Visa, MC,
Paypal, money orders, and personal checks.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend with
 "Many Happy Stitches",
