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 Glimpse

Good Evening Everyone!
Wanted to let you know that I am working
on a new sampler.  I think I am going to name
it "Family Homestead", but that could change.
Anyway, just wanted to let you see a little
of the design and feast your eyes on the
yummy rich Crescent Colours silks I am
using.  The fabric is Olde Mill Java from
R & R Reproductions, one of my favorite
colors.  Here goes, hope you like it.
I'm heading back to Richmond in the morning
and taking all of my stitching with me.  Hope to
make a dent in my new stuff if Avery will let me.
  Saturday we will be celebrating Cameron's birthday. 
Avery's Dad, Paul, had his birthday on January 28, so we 
are having a combination party.  Apple Pie and pizza, 
how is that for a combination of flavors?  
Hope all of you have a great weekend.  I hope
to catch up on some work and some sleep.
Many Happy Stitches,
