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".

Decorating With My Needlework

Hi Everyone!
I've posted two pictures in a new group,
over the last few days.  I wanted to
share them with you too.
Do you like to find unique ways to
use your stitching in decorating
your home?
I know I do because I have certainly
run out of walls after 30+years of
Here are a couple of my ideas.
This is in my Guest Bathroom -
no room gets neglected in this
house.  I know my guests wonder
what in the world is this stuff, but
who cares, they are my little
treasures.  I enjoy looking at them.
And here are my Easter eggs.  Obviously I do like
to put "all of my eggs in one basket".
If you love "primitive style" stitching, then
this is the Group for you.  You are going
to absolutely flip over all the stitching,
finishing ideas, and just general of love
of this style.  I highly recommend it!!!
Have a great week.  I'll be in Richmond Monday
and Tuesday with little Avery.  Not much
stitching getting done when I'm there, but
I hope to work on next Needle Case when
he's napping.  Maybe I'll have something to
share when I get home.
"Many Happy Spring Stitches",

  10. Thank you everyone for all of your sweet comments about my decorating. I love doing displays. I guess it comes from doing needlework shows and having my shoppe for so many years.
