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".

Quilting Adventures Open House

Hi Everyone!
Faye and I had a great time yesterday at the Open House
at Quilting Adventures in Richmond, Virginia.
Sue Hillis was there too.  I had a great time
reconnecting with Sue.  Since I haven't been to
a trade show in a few years, I have missed 
seeing her.
Quilt Adventures is mainly a quilt shoppe
but Joyce, the owner, has decided to include
cross stitch.  As cross stitch designers, we should all
be thrilled to hear this news.  There hasn't been a
cross stitch shop in Richmond for years.
There was a nice turnout, but we have to get the
word out to everyone in Richmond and those
who travel through Richmond.  It is very easy to
get to.  The link above will carry you to their
facebook page.
I was so annoyed with myself yesterday.  When
we were almost finished tearing down the
show, I remembered that I was supposed to
take pictures to show you, hence, there is only
one to post and that was taken by
someone at the shoppe.  
Sometimes I am amazed at how forgetful
I am.
Thank you to everyone who came and to Joyce
and her staff for a lovely day.  Always so much
fun to visit with stitchers.
