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".

A Really Special Day!

Good Evening Everyone!
Just had to share a really fun day. Yesterday was
a Meet and Greet at my Trunk Show at Stitcher's Stash in
Fairfax, Virginia.  If any of you live anywhere near this
adorable shoppe or plan to travel to the Northern Virginia
area, you must make this a destination.  You will not be
disappointed.  She has a wonderful selection of fabrics,
fibers, and of course, all the designs in the world, including
mine.  Yeah!
Lots of really lovely stitchers (and some wonderful friends) 
came.  I so enjoyed visiting with everyone.  That is the part that 
I still miss about giving up my shoppe almost four years ago.  
There is nothing like talking "stitching" with those that love
it as much as you do.
Thank you Jackie (the shoppe proprietress) and Carol,
here lovely assistant, for making me feel so welcome.

As you can see, my stuff is everywhere.
Hope you enjoyed the Trunk Show.  There are even
more pictures, but I thought this might be enough.
Thank you Jackie, for sharing your shoppe with
me and my designs.  
Many Happy Stitches,
