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!
Sorry I have been away for so long.  We had a terrible
time getting the "awful ad" off of my Blog.  Cameron
finally had to step in and change my template.  This
had been suggested by several of my wonderful blogging
friends, but I couldn't figure out how to do it.  
It is a very simple look, but I really like it.
My new website will have a similar feel, if I ever
get it finished.
Also wanted to let you know that I have made some
more "Ewe be Patriotic" scissor fobs.  
My new designs
are coming along.  Will be continuing my popular
"A Halloween Year" series.  The first one will be
ready really soon.  A new sampler, entitled
"Alpha Boo" will be sent to one of my stitchers
this week.  Hollis thought of the cute name.  I think
this has the makings of a new series.  We'll see!
I'm in Richmond for the next two days and Faye is
on vacation this week.  She is so lucky, but she surely
deserves it.  If you don't get the quick care this week
that you are used to, it's because ever-efficient Faye is
not "in the house".
Well, take care and I hope you have time to make
"Many Happy Stitches!"
