"DESIGNS THAT REFLECT OUR
AMERICAN HERITAGE"

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".

GIVE AWAY TYME!

Hi Again!
It is so hot here in Virginia, my mind starts thinking
about the cool, crisp days of Autumn.  In honor
of those cool, crisp days, I would like to do a 
"GIVE AWAY"~
I will be picking two winners on Wednesday.
All you have to do is leave a comment to be
chosen.
You will be able to pick six patterns from
my HALLOWEEN COLLECTIONS I AND II.
To make your selections, just go to the column on the
left, scroll down and pick from the 20+
designs that are available from the two
collections.
Here are a few examples~
Good luck!!!
"Many Happy Stitches",
Sandra

  96. I started a stitching group devoted to those Halloween projects we all want to do, but never seem to have the time to work on. The Stitcher's Coven meets the third Thursday of each month at our local shop to work on these projects and to share a good meal - we're even going to do a group project. I'm hoping my stitchy luck will be good enough for you to consider me!
