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.

Avery's Curls

Good Evening Everyone!
Hope this finds everyone OK.  We have been blessed
with a beautiful Spring in Virginia, but it looks like
we might have a tropical storm heading our way
in a few days.  No complaints here though.  We have
been so lucky when so much of the country has had
such a horrible time.  Don't you wish there was
something that could be done to stop all the 
horrible things happening in our country?
When things are so gloomy, I consider myself
lucky that I can look at our little grandson, Avery, and 
feel so blessed to have this little guy to cheer us up.
He is so adorable and so much fun.
I know all of you who follow the Blog have seen
his wonderful curls.  Well, Hollis and Paul decided
that his hair needed to be cut.  I can't tell you how
many times people said something about him 
being a little girl, even though he was dressed
as a boy.  I think that was the deciding factor.
It broke my heart, but I knew it was coming.
Let me show you some before and after
pictures.  Hollis was afraid his hair
would be straight when it was cut, but that
didn't happen.  
It was below his shoulders!
Now, it's above his collar.
He really looks like a little boy now!
Thanks for indulging a proud
