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".

Wonderful Memories!

Hi Everyone!
Just had to send out a little post about
the wonderful time Faye and I had
at Lori's
I know everyone had as great a time
as we did.  You could tell by all the
packages they were toting around
and the big smiles on their faces.
The greatest joy came from meeting
so many of you that I have gotten to
know in the Prim Stitchers' Group
or just through our love for
needlework.  That is what brought you
there and why we were there.
Of course, the biggest draw was Lori and
her fantastic shop, filled to the brim
with "goodies" of all kinds.
Everyone who works with Lori are
just as delightful as she is.  She
surrounds herself with the best.
If you were there you probably got
to meet Peter, Lori's husband
 and partner in this fabulous
adventure of theirs.  He is great~
so helpful and giving.
I have a few pictures to share.  
Unfortunately I didn't get any personal
pictures or close ups of the booth.  The
pictures I'm sharing were all taken on 
set up day, that is why you see cars, etc.  
Not quite finished at this point of the day,
but you can get the idea.
Notice the plastic behind the flowers.
That is what you have to do to keep the
dew off of your display.  Everything
has to be covered before you leave it.
To sum up the day, I have this to say~
~the weather was perfect
~the vendors were perfect
~the customers were perfect
~the friendship was perfect
~Lori and Peter were perfect
~the GATHERING was perfect
~you must all make plans to come
next September!!!  Can't
wait to see you then.


  1. Your work is stunning!!! I never did get a chance to stop over and chat with you! You were very busy all day!

  2. I'm so sorry I didn't get a chance to visit with you either. We were really busy and it was wonderful. I didn't get to walk around much because I turned my ankle Friday on a walnut. I am so clumsy. Could not believe I did such a thing. Maybe we'll get to visit next year.
