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".

Taking A Break

Good Afternoon Everyone!
Just wanted to let you know that the whole
family is going to the beach for a few days.
I cannot wait, it seems like forever since I
have gotten away for some rest and relaxation.
I don't know if you remember, but last year
we all went to the beach the same week in
September and Avery was a mere five weeks old.
Although we had a special time, it was 
definitely not our usual beach week.  Hollis
was still not up to par and Avery was so
tiny.  Looking back on it we were probably
crazy to drag that little thing and a recovering
"new mommy" that far away from home,
but we survived and can look back on it
with amazement now that he is 13 months
and all over the place.  Needless to
say we are lugging many baby gates to
keep him away from the two flights of
steps we will be dealing with.  
Before I leave Homespun Elegance behind
for a short time, I wanted to share a few
little "glimpses" of some things in the 
Avery's Christmas Stocking is nearly
finished.  I should be able to show you
the progress when I get back.  I think
you are going to love it.


"Rejoice In The Gift"
Continuing my Christmas Ornament Heart
Collection.  Not your typical Christmas
colors, but very soft and pretty.

 "Treats For Thee"
A must for a special person in your life
and especially appropriate for a
special child.  I bet you know who is going to get 
one of these.
Well, that is all for now.  Hope you are
all having a great week and will continue
to do so while I am away.  Don't worry, I
will still be stitching.  I will be stitching
in the car, so I will have about nine
hours of uninterrupted stitching time.  
Can't wait!
Many Happy Stitches,
