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".

Open House Pictures

Hi Everyone!
I just received a newsletter from 
Remember~I went there a few
Saturdays ago to do an
Open House
Sue Hillis.
It was so much fun getting to talk
with Sue and the other
wonderful cross stitchers that
came to visit us.  Not to mention
the more than nice staff and owner
of this delightful shop.  If you
live in the surrounding area,
please go by and see them.  They
are trying really hard to make
cross stitch a big part of their
shoppe.  We so need every shoppe
we can get.  Richmond, the
capital of Virginia, hasn't had a
shoppe in many years, so this
is a real blessing.
Before I show you the pictures, I
must defend myself.  I had to fuss
at Sue.  She lives in the Richmond
area, so was able to come in the
day before and spent more
than a few hours setting up a
wonderful display.  NOT FAIR!
Faye and I had one hour Saturday
(9-10) to set up my display.
Somehow we managed to get
it done, but we were hustling.
Please go here to see all the
This was not my whole display, just a
few shots.  We had three large tables 
filled with the designs.
If you click on here in the paragraph above the
pictures, you can see Sue's beautiful display.
Many Happy Stitches,

    1. Hi, I just realized your message was from almost a year ago. When I clicked on my Blog this is what was on the screen. Sometimes blogger does the craziest things. Regardless, it would have been so much fun to have seen you.

  2. I wish you could have too. That would have been so much fun! Blessings, Sandra
