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".

Some Goodies!

Good Evening Everyone!
You will not believe what happened this
week.  I went to Hollis' on Sunday to babysit
for Avery as usual.  By early afternoon Hollis 
starts feeling sick and Paul is at work and he is 
also sick.  We all thought they had food poisoning 
from their dinner out the night before, so I wasn't  
 really concerned about getting sick.  Besides I 
  had to take care of Avery.
Well, by Tuesday afternoon I am sick, so
sick that Lehmer has to come get me on
Wednesday.  Anyway I am finally feeling
better.  It has been a long time since I have
had an intestinal virus, and hope it will be
even longer before it happens again. 
The most important thing is that Avery is
still OK.  
Wanted to share a little glimpse of
something I am working on.  I hope to
get these ready in time for your gift giving.
Do you like Scherenschnitte - paper cutting?
I do and I particularly love silhouettes.
These will make lovely Christmas 
decorations or just as Cupboard Hangers.
There will be other silhouettes, not just
pretty ladies.
I ask you, is this not one of the cutest things
you have ever seen.  Fat and sassy he is!!
Thanks for taking a break from your stitching
to read my blog.
Many Merry Stitches,
