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".

Notforgotten Farm Gathering

Good Evening Everyone!
I lied to you last night when I said you would not
hear any Homespun Elegance news until I returned
from my vacation, but I changed my mind.  
That's what happens when you get to my age
and you can't always remember exactly what
you said.  Please don't hold it against me.  I
must learn to not make promises.
This is exciting news.  I will be exhibiting at
Notforgotten Farm Gathering 
the weekend after I return from the beach.  Boy,
do I have my work cut out for me.  I will have
one week to prepare for this great show.  I have
been trying for three years to be a vendor at
this show, and something always gets in the
way.  I don't know if you remember this, but
three years ago, the weekend after Labor Day, 
Hollis and I were returning from a beach weekend 
(actually about one mile from her house)
 and we were broadsided.
It totaled my SUV and me.  Was in physical
therapy for a while after that.  Needless, to say,
dealing with my injuries and the lack of
my car, I didn't show up at the Gathering.
The next year Avery was newly born, so it was
out of the question.  Last year, I don't know what
happened (age again!), but I didn't go.  Well, I
am trying my best to be there this year.  
Really excited to see any and all of you who
happen to come and to meet all of the
fantastic vendors.
I hope to see many of you there!  I'll
talk to you about Homespun when I get back,
but I may have to post or Facebook some
pictures of my trip.
Take care while I am gone.
