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!
I hope you are all having a great week.  I had
a really special two days this week with our
sweet Avery.  He just started crawling a few
days ago and today he took his first steps
pushing his Radio Flyer wagon.  So cute!
Hollis was able to video part of it so Lehmer
and I got to see this milestone. 
If you have followed me for many years, you
know that I love to  paint.  I don't have much
time to devote to it, but periodically I need the
diversion.  I have decided to interpret some
of these little paintings into cross stitch and
then use the paintings to make wooden
scissor fobs.  This is the first one.  The design
will be sold separately from the fob, but I
hope you will find it fun to have the set for
your collection.  
Please let me know what you think.  This will
be ready in a few weeks (just in time for the
Columbus market) along with
Many Happy Stitches,


  1. You are good with it. Keep them coming.

  5. Aw cute! I think it might be fun to have a little stitched piece (a pin pillow?) with a matching, painted fob to go with it.

  6. I go way back as a Homespun Elegance groupie!!! I have all your designs and can never wait for new ones to come out!! What a great new idea.

  7. Hi Everyone! Trying to play catch up this morning. Thank you so much for all of your nice comments. I am printing the covers of these two new designs right now. They will go out to distributors and shoppes next week.
    Many Happy Stitches, Sandra
