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".

Good Morning Everyone!
I am home on Friday and this is because
Avery has started back to daycare on
Thursday and Friday.  I will still be taking care of
him on Monday and Tuesday.  Yesterday was his
first day and we were all a apprehensive
about how he would handle it after being
home for nine months.  Can you believe he
is nine months old!!  Well, he did really well
considering these were people he had never seen
before.  I think Hollis and Grammie
suffered more just worrying about him.  He
was off of his schedule by the evening, but
that will work itself out soon.  His care givers
all talked about what a happy baby he is.
I just have to share.  Being with him so much,
I get to take a lot of pictures.  I think these are
just priceless.  Hope you enjoy my little
Avery show.
I'm calling this one 
and you'll see why.
Who is that?
 I think that is me!!
 Can I get to me?
How about a kiss!  He loves kisses!
 I handed Avery a mirror and this is what happened.
I took many, many pictures with all of his reactions.
He went from seeing himself with amazement, to
smiling at himself and laughing, to trying to get
to himself.  It was the cutest thing.
I want to thank you again for following my Blog
and I'm happy some you took advantage of
my "Celebration Sale and Giveaway".  You
all deserve it for listening to me "be a Grammie" and
just participating in my life and the happenings at
Homespun Elegance.  I have been getting some
inquiries about future sales.  This was a one time sale
to celebrate a big event.  I wanted to make it
special.  There may be some little specials, close outs
and things like that, but  not a repeat of this.  
Hope to show you some new things in the works
later today or tomorrow, so stay tuned.
Many Happy Stitches,
