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".

Autumn in Virginia

Hi Everyone!
Taking a break from all the work.  Such a beautiful
day here in Virginia, I thought I would
share all of my wonderful pumpkins 
and their great stems with you.
Do you get excited about stems that way
I do.  If it doesn't have a great stem,
then I do not want it.
Hope you enjoy!
 A great stem! Don't you agree?
 Don't you love that enormous
Butternut Squash!!!
 Look at that stem.  Oh my goodness!  The
best yet!
The leaves are starting to fall, the temperatures are
starting to fall, I guess it is Fall~
Hope you had a great Fall  day~ I did!


  1. pretty pics sandra, looks like you're having a lovely mild day, wonderful stem are always a bonus:) getting ready to dust off the flannel sheets here in ny... xo

  2. We drove through the great state of Virginia on Saturday and the weather was wonderful. Love being in my home state...but the traffic in Northern Virginia where I lived was crazy!

  3. I too look at the stems when picking my pumpkins and gourds ~ when it's time to get rid of the pumpkins I take the stems off and use them in some of my projects. Beautiful pics!!!
    Prim Blessings

  4. It's mild here in the UK too - I must go and get my pumpkin tomorrow :) Lovely pictures
