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 Little Glimpse

Good Evening Everyone!
I cannot believe it has been so long since my last post.
It is impossible to tell you everything I have been
doing, but believe me it has been a busy time.
The main thing that has been taking up most
of my time is getting ready for the boutique
that I will be in at the Just Cross Stitch Seminar
in Williamsburg the first week in December.
I know, it sounds like a long time from now, but
they had to have a nearly complete inventory list
 by last week, so decisions had to be made 
about what to send, how many, if I have time
to make more "stuff", and on and on.  Once again
my house is destroyed with stuff laying everywhere,
much like it was when I was going to 
Norforgotten Farm.  This week we must finalize
all of this, pack it up and store somewhere
besides my home, because we are hosting
Thanksgiving as we always do.  I don't think
my family would appreciate the mess.
In the middle of this chaos, I did manage
to almost finish one design -  Here's a 
little glimpse of
I know what you are thinking.  You cannot
believe I am doing an owl design, but you
must understand that Avery loves owls.
One of his first words was "Hoo, Hoo".
His lst birthday party had an owl theme.
So, you understand now that this just
had to be.  Also, I have an owl "Delivering"
design that is being stitched now.  Can't
wait for that to get here.
So, here is my little owl.  Hope you love
owls or know someone who does.  I hope
this will be ready for shipment next week.
Also, I finished graphing Avery's Christmas
ornament, so I must start stitching that this
If you follow my Blog, you know he loves 
to pout right now.  So adorable! 
The title is
So much to do, it is really making me anxious.
Leaving in the morning to go to Richmond.  It's
Avery time, so I won't get much done while
I'm there.  Talk with you in a few days.
"Many Happy Stitches",
