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".

2013 Santa Ornament

Good Evening Everyone!
Lehmer and I just came in from the backyard
and there is this wonderful crispness in the air -
almost chilly.  I know it is just a tease because the
heat and humidity are coming back tomorrow,
but it felt wonderful.
I've been working on Christmas designs for the
last few weeks and it has been so much fun.
My 2013 Christmas Snowman and Sampler 
are being stitched right now, and I have just
finished the Santa.
Thought I would go ahead and let you see
a little of him.  Love the way he turned out.  Santa 
is always my favorite design to do.  Please
let me know what you think.
2013 Annual Santa Ornament
"Giver of Goodies"
~Includes the Santa Face embellishment~
I hope to have all of the ornaments ready 
soon, so you have plenty of time to get them
stitched for the "most wonderful time of the year".
Now I have to decide how to finish him.  That's
my goal for tomorrow.
Have a great night.  Off to find my sewing needle~
