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".

A Little Peak

Hi There!
It has been a crazy Sunday and now I have
three posts in a row.  The weather man is calling
for icy conditions here tomorrow morning so my
trip to Richmond has been moved up to this
afternoon.  I have to be there in the morning
so that Hollis and Paul can get to work on time.
I knew this was coming.  We have been so lucky
in the weather that we have had.  Just a little
snow and ice on Saturday.  I hope this isn't
the beginning of our weather pattern changing.
Anyway, I have been printing my new things
like crazy.  Running up and down the stairs
between shoving paper in the printer and shoving
stuff in my suitcase and bags for Homespun
Elegance stuff that I lug to Richmond every week.
You would think I would lose a few pounds, but
oh no.  The middle age spread arrived and doesn't
want to leave.  Not happy about that either!!
Because of my schedule change, I need to
show you a little peak of something sweet
coming your way.
This will be released in time for the Nashville
show so I have to hurry up.
I'm also reprinting another old design.  I've
always loved this one.  It includes some of my
favorite things - pineapples and sampler motifs.
Hope you like it.  It will be in my Etsy shoppe
soon, but not this week.  Let me know if you
think I should reprint.  I love your feed back.
"Welcome Each New Day"
Well, I must go.  Be back in touch next
Wednesday.  Have a great week!
Many Happy Stitches,
