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".

Funky Blue Bird

Good Morning Everyone!!
Do you love crocks as much as I do?
Here are some pictures of those in my 

 "Funky Blue Bird" Pillow
~~~TIS SOLD~~~
Thank you Pam!
Here is a pillow I painted based on an old crock.
  Unfortunately, that crock is not in my collection, 
one that I could never afford.  Hand-painted using
fabric paints on even-weave jute (which is a much
nicer quality than your run-of-the-mill jute), and
mounted on wool felt.  The back is the same wool felt.
Measures a generous 11" High X 10" Wide.  
It is lightly stuffed with polyfil.  
~~~$38.00 which includes the shipping~~~
Hope she will find a nice home soon - I
say "she" because she has fancy tail feathers.
If you like her, just call or email me.  She will
also be added to my ETSY site soon.
Many Happy Stitches,
