"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".

New Designs Have Shipped

Hi Everyone!
Just wanted to let you know that my three new
designs shipped at the end of last week.
If they are not already in your favorite shoppe, they
should be very soon.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Here they are~
CINNAMON STICK SANTA XXV
"Belsnickle Chimney Santa"
You will get three designs with this
publication~
-a pillow
-a "Hanging Pocket" and
-an ornament.
I used 20 Count "Putty" linen from
Weeks Dye Works for the pillow and
the Hanging Pocket and 30 Count
"18th Century Brown" from 
R and R Reproductions.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
"CHRISTMAS TREES 'A PLENTY"
This is finished as a hanging pocket and stitched
on 32 Count "Classic Homespun".  I am
very proud to say that R and R Reproductions
named this fabric for me.  It is a wonderful
fabric and will be produced in
multiple counts for your stitching pleasure.
I embellished this with coffee dyed "Warm and Natural",
and then used four of my Olde Brass "Tree" buttons
and "vintage" buttons from my collection.
Don't you think this could stay out all winter?
Just fill with some evergreens and you are all set.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
"OH JOYOUS ACORN"
is finished as another one of my Hanging
Pouches.  It is stitched on 20 Count
"Putty" linen from Weeks Dye Works.
It is embellished with my Autumn buttons.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well, that is it for tonight.  Back to the basement to
continue working on more Christmas designs.  Love to
design for this time of the year.
"Many Happy Stitches",
Sandra
