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".

Away Too Long

Good Evening Everyone!
Hope all is well in your little corner of the world.
My corner has been more than busy and more than
a little stressful.  I cannot believe that we have been
back from the beach for over a week and I still haven't
chatted with you.  Because it is Sunday night and I
have to pack to go back to Richmond, I haven't much
time, but wanted to check in.  My week (after returning
from our wonderful vacation) has been crazy.  It seems
like you get punished for getting away for a few
glorious days with your family.
Anyway, I will be back mid week with some news
about designs in the works and pictures of our 
wonderful vacation.
 I do want to share a few
sneak peaks of the progress on Avery's stocking.
It came back from a wonderful new stitcher just
after returning from the beach.  As usual when I have 
someone else stitch something from the beginning,
 I end up making a few changes.  What you see in your mind's 
eyes isn't always the way it should be.  But this time it was 
almost perfect, so it is well on its way to being released.  

I love it and cannot wait to find all the goodies to
fill it to the brim with "Cheer and Delight".
Hope you have a little one that needs a stocking too!!
Talk to you soon.
Many Happy Stitches,
