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".

Grammie's Helper

Good Evening!
I hope everyone is well after a wonderful
Thanksgiving.  I worked and ate way too much,
 am really tired tonight, feel like I've gained at
least five pounds~but it was all worth it.
Hope I can get back on my normal diet
tomorrow and then I will start feeling better
and have some energy.  I am experiencing
a carb hangover I believe.  Way too much
sugar and starches.
Here is one of the starches that I consumed
way too much of~sugar cookies.  I just
love them and so does a certain little
boy.  He was my little helper.  Stirred
the dry ingredients~
Cut in the butter~
Decorated the cookies~
he tried so hard and really
did a pretty good job, especially at
placing the eyes and putting on bunches of
brown sprinkles.
The results of our labors~
Big turkey cookies for all the children.
He was so proud!!!
Avery is such a little helper.
No matter what you are doing, he says
"I want to help".  Wonder how long this
will last.  
 Made lots of little turkey cookies
too, but forgot to take a picture of them.
 Time to move on now and start to
think about Christmas and all the things I 
have to do.
It is going to be a nice day tomorrow so 
Lehmer and I will go get our tree and then
I'll start pulling out my decorations.
I'll be back with my Christmas 
"Show and Tell".
"Many Merry Stitches",


  1. Your little helper is too cute.
    His cookies turned out really cute too!
    Great memories.
    Can't wait to see your decorated tree. :)

  2. Thank you so much Marilyn! He is a great little helper right now. I wonder how long that is going to last? Bought the tree today. I hate getting it set up. Getting too old for lifting huge trees, but I still love the decorating. Plus, the smell is wonderful!

  3. Oh my he has grown - lovely photo xx
