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 a Monday.  Seems so strange.  Hollis
and Paul's scheduled was unexpectedly changed, so 
mine was too.  I'll be there Tuesday and Wednesday.
I haven't seen Avery since last Tuesday which is the
longest period of time without holding that little guy.
Boy do I miss him.   I hate to complain because I know
some of you don't get to see your grandchildren as often
as I do.  In fact, my best friend's grandchildren live
in Belize and New York City, so she doesn't want
to hear me complain  -- ever.  
Today will be very busy.  I am going to be one of
the featured designers in Norden Craft's Needleworkers
series.  I have to get all of my questions answered and
do a free design for all of you guys.  I will let you
know when it goes up on their website so you can
get the "freebie".  Also, my 2012 Annual Christmas
Ornaments are on the drawing table.

Just wanted to let you know that my new things are ready
and will be shipped soon to my distributors and Auto Shoppes.
"Ewe Be Patriotic"
Scissor fob will be available separately!
"A Family Homestead"
Note the new frame which is available!
Also, wanted to share a little glimpse of something new
that will be coming later.  Don't you love the colors?
If you don't, there are only two main colors, so you can
easily make it your own.
If you are familiar with this series, they are all finished
as Cupboard Hangers or Pin Keeps.  A quick stitch for 
you or a needle friend.  
"Sampler Lady"
Wishing you a great Monday with 
"Many Happy Stitches",


  1. Love the Ewe Be Patriotic and the new design looks interesting also.
    Glad you get to see Avery often.

  2. OOh, Christmas Ornaments! I so look forward to seeing these the last few years (since I discovered them).
