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 Finished

Good Evening Everyone!
I am pleased as punch to tell you that 
Cinnamon Stick XXIV 
Avery's Stocking
"Cheer & Delight"
is almost ready for publication.
It is going to my finisher tomorrow,
but I am so excited that the last stitch
has been done, I just had to share.
In addition to the stocking, there will
be a bed/post or door hanging that I
think you might like too.  If all goes well,
I hope this will be available in a few
It has been a few years ago, but here
are the two Cinnamon Stick stockings
I designed for my children, Cameron and 
Hollis.  They proudly hang from my
fireplace mantle every year.  Now, I will
have Avery's to hang with them.
Cinnamon Stick Stocking I
 "Stitched With Love"
for Cameron
 Cinnamon Stick Stocking II
"Stitched With Joy"
for Hollis
Both of these designs are still available.
I think they are timeless and hopefully they
will be a part of their Christmases for
years to come.
I hope to be back tomorrow with some
more new things to share.
Many Happy Stitches,
