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".

Free Design

Good Afternoon Everyone!
This is a very quick post this afternoon.  I just wanted
to let you know that I did a free design for all of you
that was featured in Norden Needleworkers a few 
days ago.  The interview I did was before that.
If you would like to read the interview and get the
freebie graph than go here This is a wonderful
feature that Norden Distributors started several 
months ago.  They are interviewing designers and
shop owners, so I think you will find it a fun read.
I have certainly enjoyed reading the interviews.
Anyway, scroll down to August 8th for the interview
and August 24th for the "freebie".
The "freebie" is titled
"Treasured Friend",
which is how I think of all of you.  I hope you enjoy it.
If you need the "Open Crown" charm, hopefully 
your favorite shoppe will have it.  If not, you can
get it from me.
Since so many of you cannot find the graph on Norden's
Blog, here it is.  Just click on the graph and enjoy!

Also, I wanted you to know that I have updated my
Etsy Shoppe.
Be back soon with some new stuff!!
Many Happy Stitches,
