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".

Goodies Flor Sale . . .

The first problem this year was that Thanksgiving
was a week later and I never realized that until
it was too late.  I pretty much save anything that
has to do with Christmas until after Thanksgiving.
Really paying for it now.
to add insult to injury I came down with
a nasty upper respiratory thing the day after
Thanksgiving and I am just starting to feel
a little better. Just about coughed myself to
death and that is so exhausting.
Avery came down with a nasty stomach 
virus last Saturday, which
he then gave to Paul and then to Hollis.
Hollis was really, really sick.  She ran a
high fever in addition to all the other
horrible things.  Couldn't have happened
at a worse time because of what she
had going on at work.  There was no
way she could take care of Avery, so 
Lehmer and I brought him home with us
on Monday.  He's two, remember, and
nothing gets done with him here, except
playing with and loving this little boy.
So - no decorating, shopping, cooking,
even thinking about these things out
of the question.
While he was here, he got a terrible
upper respiratory infection and had
to go to the DR this am.  I'm
just a little stressed.  At least, he is now on
medicine, so he should be better soon.
Usually I try to offer you some more "goodies" for
gift giving or for yourself, but  I'm behind on
that too.  Here are a few things you might be
interested in.
Here are some sweet pillows I did.
They measure  approximately 12" X 7"
with a stitched ribbon.
Only $15.00 (includes the shipping)
Please specify by the stitched design.
 Gingerbread Man
Painted Holly Box
I painted this little papermache box and filled
it with a bag of wonderful balsam.  It measures
4 3/4" long X 3 1/2"wide X 2" deep
$19.00 (includes the shipping)
I have one.
Painted Snowman Box
I painted this little papermache box and
filled it with a bag of sparkling Christmas
Snow.  3 1/2" long X 2 1/2" wide X
1 1/2" high.
13.00 (includes the shipping)
I have a few of these.
Reproduction Boot 
So adorable, I hope you love it.
6" tall and 4 1/4" across the toe.
$11.00 (shipping included)
Really Large Gift Bags
This is a fantastic gift bag measuring 24" wide X
41" high.  This will hold lots of "goodies".  It is a 
heavy duty plastic, so it can be used 
year after year.  
You will get three bags for $11.00.
(includes shipping)
Chenille Trim
Do you need chenille for finishing your 
Christmas ornaments?
This is my chenille.  Please specify "Christmas Red" or
"Dirty White".  You will receive a package with
three - one yard pieces.
$4.00 (shipping included)
Christmas Trees
Don't you love these little trees?  I added the little
hand-painted pots, a little glitter, and some red beads.
They are about 9" tall.
  These would be wonderful
added to your "primitive" decorating.
You will receive all three for $18.00 (includes shipping)
That is it for tonight.  I hope you find something
you like.  
I need to go make another list to add to my other lists!!
"Many Merry Stitches", 


  1. Geez. I hope everyone gets well and stays well!

  2. I hope everyone is feeling better. Poor Avery...I hate when the little ones get sick. I sent you an email. I love the snowman box.
