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".

Down Memory Lane

Good Morning Everyone!
Sorry I didn't wish you a 
Merry Halloween 
yesterday.  The day just got away from
me as usual, but I was reminiscing last night
about Halloweens past.  This picture has
a permanent spot on my living room bookcase.
This was probably about 1979.  I always tried to make
Cameron and Hollis' costumes and we decorated
a lot.   I was always a hobo.  So much fun ~ so
many memories!
Can you see the resemblance.  Hollis looks like
a little Avery with a little more hair.  
Anyway, Hollis and Paul  didn't have such a good time 
with Avery last night.  I'll have to share later with a 
picture of him.
Be back later today.
"Many Happy Stitches",

  4. Sandra I love the picture! I think I see a pie on the table... I think Avery looks just like Hollis in that picture! Just adorable!

  5. What a sweet memory, Sandra. How lucky we are that our children bring us such joy! The resemblance between Hollis and Avery is striking. Would he be around the same age now as she was in the picture?
    I posted a finish with one of your classic designs for Halloween. I hope you like it! I sure did :)

  6. Oh gosh Sandra, what a great old pic of you and your little ones, adorable - tfs:)
