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".

Valentine Wishes

I hope you are all having a wonderful Valentine's Day.
Mine is getting better now that I am back from
another DR's appointment.  Will it ever end!
Wanted to share a few things with you, first
some pictures of my meager Valentine's Day
Love this olde heart-shaped basket and that wonderful
old velvet pincushion fits it perfectly.  I used vintage
pins to make the heart.  I know you are going to
covet my sheep, but you can't have him.
This heart-shaped basket is filled almost entirely with
family Valentines that my Grandma Rose kept.
She kept every card and letter she ever got.
I know I got that gene from her, and it is haunting me.
I need to start getting rid of stuff, but not this
wonderful reminder of my Grandma.
 Beautiful flowers from Lehmer, Hollis, Paul
and Avery!
 I do love chocolate, but one of my favorite food
groups is really, really good jelly beans, so I got
lots and lots of cherry jelly beans.  YUM!
I'm really excited about that big, beautiful
sugar cookie with the great icing.
Thank you Lehmer!
I wish you all a wonderful Valentine's Day
and I hope it is filled with a few
"Sweet Stitches",
