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".

Spring Things

Good Afternoon Everyone!
It is a delightful Spring day here in Virginia.
The daffodils are blooming everywhere in my
yard, so I had to pick some the other day
to take to Hollis and to put in the house.
Thought I would share some pictures of a
little Spring decorating - very little I might
add, but it was time for the pine cones to be
put away for another year.
 This is my Necessary Room as you can tell from
the cross stitch.   I thought I would add a little lion
and sheep - in like a lion, out like a lamb.  Luckily
the lion did not do his job this year, although we
have had a little dusting of snow this week.
 I'm getting ready for cookie making days with Avery.
Unfortunately, I have to wait until next year, but we
will be ready with my birds, bunnies, and sheep
cutters.  I do this window almost the same way each
year.  I am really becoming a creature of habit, or
maybe it's because I love the same stuff.  
 I love this heart hanging with the little bottle added
to it.  This hangs in the kitchen with whatever
flower, herb, or greenery that happens to be
in season.
 My sheep molds on top of my pie safe.
I really do love my sheep.  Please don't look too 
closely, it is a real pain to dust this shelf.  Blue
is a good color for ignoring dust as long as possible.
Just thought I would let you know that I am adding
to Etsy sometime today.  If you don't use Etsy,
just give us a call or email us.
Plus, I am adding a scissor fob ~
order because of the hand-painted initial. 
The print is decoupaged on a wooden heart, then 
I paint the initial and reseal.  The black cord is
It measures 2 2/3" X 1 1/2". 
$13.50 -  includes shipping.  
I take Paypal, MC, Visa, and personal checks.
Once again, if you do not do ETSY, just give
us a call or email us.
Back to work for me.  
Many Happy Stitches,


  1. Love your Spring decorating.
    The Daffodils are pretty!

  2. It's so nice to see all that spring decor! I actually saw my first robin this morning even though we still have snow on the ground. Our mild weather this past Wednesday might have fooled him!
