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".

Your Shopping Pleasure

Good Afternoon Everyone!
How cold is it in your neck of the woods.  It is
freezing here, the wind is howling, and the 
leaves are blowing.  Definitely feels like
Christmas is on its way.  I'm devoting this
afternoon to offering you some little gift
items you might like.  If I have time I hope
to offer you some more after
Thanksgiving, but still in plenty of time
for Christmas giving or maybe for
gifting to yourself.
If you see anything you want, just email me.
All prices include the shipping.  You can pay
using Paypal (need your email address), Visa,
Mastercard, and check.
Sorry, but I am only shipping in the USA
at this time.
Pincushion Basket Necklace
I have distressed a tiny basket and added
a pincushion and two black pins.  The
little spool is wrapped with floss.  If
you want another color floss, it can be
easily removed and rewrapped.  The black
cord is finished at a generous 38".

and a Shirt Waist Set (missing one pin but still
wonderful).  What a great gift for someone who loves
these "Vintage" items, to be displayed as is.
"Scissor Pin"
Do you like a little bling or know someone who
does?  How much fun would it be to wear this to 
a needlework function!!!!
