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".

Thank You Soooo Much ~

Good Morning~
  This was an upsetting situation
 and certainly made for a long weekend.
 I did receive an email from the blogger so I am
putting this behind me and moving on.
Today is a new day!
In regard to all of you, I can never thank 
you enough for your kind words,
both on this Blog and Facebook.
Your kindness is overwhelming and
very much appreciated.  
Let's continue making
"Many HAPPY Stitches",


  1. I'm just now catching up and am said to read that you received such a letter. It is a shame that everyone can not meet you, as you are one of the sweetest people I know. I guess the writer of the letter was just having a bad day and may realize that mistakes do happen to EVERYONE and we all are trying our best to catch them.
    So thanks Sandra for so many years of dedicated designing with 100's or is it 1000's of designs that you have given us over the years. Please keep them coming as I for one know if I have a question about a pattern a simple question to you will set me right. Thanks again

  2. Beautiful Sandra: I am happy this is in the past, I do hope it never happens again.

  3. You are right Today is a new day - glad you are able to move on and I am certain we will all continue to make many happy stitches together x

  4. So many truly artistic people(like you) seem to have to put up with others unkindness. I'm so glad you have decided to put it behind you! I love your work!

  5. You are one of the first designers I stitched when I got back into my stitching back in the 90's. one of the things I really enjoy about your designs are the specialty stitches. Because of one your designs with a sheep in French knots I mastered the knots!!! Thank you for sharing your talent.

  6. Gorgeous designs, I came from The Needlework show and am now a follower.
    Dont let people like that get you down, they are in the minority.

  7. I found your blog via the Online Needlework Show, and am so glad that I did. Your designs are beautiful!

  8. I am following your blog now, after the invite from the Needlework Show. It's always nice to discover new talent in the cross stitch hobby!
