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".

Hi Everyone!
Well, it has been quite a day.  Up at the crack of dawn
for a 7:30 appointment for two MRI's, one on my wrist
and the other on my neck.  I should have the results the
latter part of next week.  The good news is the pain let
up again Wednesday of last week so I could help Hollis
and Paul with Avery's birthday party.  I was so thankful
because I truly could not have enjoyed the day if
the pain had continued.  This is the third time since
April that this pain has flared up and then subsided.
So thankful for the pain free times, but so sick of
 worrying that everything I do is going to set it off.
Thank all of you for your concern.  I appreciate it
so much.
I cannot believe how far behind I am, but I have
nearly finished the annual ornaments (they just need 
their trim).  The first design for "A Halloween Year" is 
stitched and several others are being graphed.
"Scenes Of Summer" is finally ready.  I hope all
of these designs will be on the way to shoppes
and distributors in a week or so.
is being stitched right now.  Do you love samplers?
Do you love Halloween?
I am so excited about this sampler and hope you will
be too.  Here is a little glimpse of the colors and 
the graph.  Much more to come!

The colors are really great.  I am so ready for Fall.
What about you?
Well, let me get back to work.
