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".

New Stuff

Good Morning Everyone!
We are back from my wonderful short trip to Williamsburg, 
Virginia - one of my most favorite places in the world.
Faye and I dropped off my Trunk Show and lots of
other goodies for the Just Cross Stitch Boutique.  Got
to visit with lots of old friends from the needlework world.
It really made me realize how much I have missed going
to the trade shows.
Williamsburg was as beautiful as ever.  It was all decked
out in its "colonial finery" for the festive holiday season.
Every doorway is more beautiful than the next.
The natural beauty of the decorations is and always will
be my type of holiday decorating.
I want to show you my last Christmas design for 2012.
I will be shipping this next week, so if you are interested
please let me know.  I know it is getting very late for
stitching, but it is a "quickie" and may be perfect for
that little one in your life.
"Candy Cane Cutie"
I made this into a little pouch to hang on the
tree/cupboard, filled with treats for your "Cutie".
If you look really closely on the left next to
the "c" in candy, I have stitched over a pearl
button to make it look like a peppermint candy.
The little button is included, as well as an
alphabet for your special person's name.
Just think of all the cute little things you can
tuck in the pouch.  Can't wait to fill with
"goodies" for little Avery.
The "Dirty Chenille" trim is available from me.
If you cannot find this at your local shoppe, you
can order from me.  It is $9.00 which includes
the design, button, and shipping.
This will be available in a few days.
"Goodies Basket"
Also wanted to show you the little basket that
is part of the "Goodies Basket".  You cannot see
it very well in the model picture, so here it is.  It is available
in brick red, green, gold, and antique white.

The "Goodies Basket" (basket and design) is available for 
shipment now.  It is $12.00 (+ shipping) and extra baskets are 
$6.00 each (+shipping).
Well, it is time to call it a night.  
"Many Merry Stitches",
