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".

Making Family Memories

Good Evening Everyone!
I know everyone is so busy right now, myself
included, but I wanted to share with you
one of my favorite things to do.
If you have been reading my Blog,
then you know that I am a very
obnoxious "Grammie" and 
proud of it.  
This adorable little guy, Avery, is now
three years old.  So you have put up with
me for three years~sharing pictures and
cute stories.
Well, it's Christmas again and every year
I have taken his Christmas picture with
the Steiff teddy bear.
I know I have shared with you that
it is his Mommy's bear that we gave 
her when she was a little girl.
It is fun to compare the size of the
bear with Avery as he grows.

Oh my gosh, he is so excited about
Christmas.  It is going to be so much fun!!!

I love the look of innocence and joy~
to be able to experience his childhood 
is so precious.
Merry Christmas,
