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".

Hi Everyone!
This is just a quick post to let everyone k
now about my new designs 
that are being released at the
St. Charles trade show.

want.  They will be able to pick up
these designs in
Norden Crafts booth.

This is the llth design in this series~one
more to go.  It is stitched on 30 Count 
"Mink" over-dyed linen from
R & R Reproductions.  I used a variety
of fibers, but I give you an
Alternate Color Code.  It is embellished
with my Mini Brass "Star" charms and
my "Rusty Brown" chenille.
Here is
 I hope you love this design as much
as I do.  It was inspired by the
hospitality that I love to extend to my
family and friends at
Christmas Tyme.  
I stitched it on a 28 Count "Cream" 
linen, which I coffee dyed.
I have included my Olde Brass
"Pineapple" button with the design.
After the trade show I will be shipping
these to my distributors.
Thanks for visiting~
