"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".

Happy To Be Back!

I'm Happy To Be Back!!!

I hope this Blog post finds you all well. I cannot believe it
has been so long since I have shared anything with you, 
but it has and I'm sorry.  
Believe it or not I have been doing some designing but 
obviously not as much as I use to do.  But, I am
happy to report that my Annual Christmas Ornaments
and Avery's Christmas ornament are ready and will 
ship to my Distributors this week.  What a relief!!!

Can you believe that it is time to be thinking about
stitching for Christmas? It is still in the 80's and 90's
in Virginia and has been one of the hottest summers
ever.  So ready for fall ~ not for winter ~ but fall will 
be even more lovely than it usually is.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
It is time to share my new designs and I so hope
you like them and will add something to your
Christmas tree.

ANNUAL SANTA ORNAMENT
"Forget Me Not"
~~~~~~~~~~~~
ANNUAL SAMPLER ORNAMENT
"Merry Deery"
~~~~~~~~~~~~
ANNUAL SNOWMAN ORNAMENT
"Snow Merry II"
~~~~~~~~~~~~
AVERY'S CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT
"Avery's Toy Express"

~~~~~~~~~~~~
NOTE ~ 
I have decided not to use embellishments
on my ornaments this year.  Just wanted
to make you aware so you wouldn't 
be looking for one.  The good news 
is that there is a price reduction for
each ornament.  Hopefully that will
make everybody happy.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well, that is all for tonight.  

Wishing you
"Many Merry Stitches",
Sandra

    1. Thank you Catherine for your sweet message. I don't like winter either but I do love fall. Hoping this winter will be a mild one for all of us after this dreadful summer of hot, hot weather, tornadoes, flooding and fires. It has to be better than that.

    1. Thank you Sherri! When I did Avery's ornament I never thought of all the people out there who know someone who flies. That is an added bonus for me!

  11. Thank you so much Susan! What a sweet message. You made my day. I certainly have been around for a long time haven't I. It makes me so happy that you still like the designs that you stitched in the 80's. I always hoped that some of my designs would be timeless.
