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".

Almost Ready

Good Afternoon!
Hope all of you are having a wonderful Labor Day.
I am truly laboring on Labor Day.  Doing my best
to get these three new publications ready this week.
I will be away week after next, so I really have to
get these to my Auto Shoppes and Distributors
before then.
  Hope you like them.  Please let me know what
you think.
I had so much fun doing this sampler,
putting in all of my favorite Halloween
motifs and using the wonderful colors
of Autumn.   It is stitched on 30 Count
"Mink" from R & R Reproductions.  I
love this fabric!  The frame is by me
and it is embellished with my Olde Brass
"Star Pumpkin" button.
This is the first ornie in my new collection for
A Halloween Year II.  
It is stitched on 30 Count "Havana"
from Weeks Dye Works.  It is embellished 
with "Cinnamon" chenille from R & R Reproductions
and my "Mouse" brass charm.

for Halloween
These are all stitched on 27 Count linen banding.  I used
wool felt for the top and bottom and each is embellished
with my "Amber Pearl" Star  button on the top.  The
design goes all the way around to the back.   I tried
to show you most of the design.  A very quick stitch
and very easy to put together.   Start a Halloween tree
or wreath this year.
Hope you enjoyed my little "Show and Tell".  I've been
so anxious to get these ready to share.
Well, I must get back to work.
