"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".

Christmas House Tour

Hi Everyone!
I cannot believe it has been so long since I have done a Blog post,
but you all know how it is at Christmas.  I seemed to use Face book 
because it was so much easier and faster.  Hope that was OK
with all of you, but it is a New Year and I hope to be better.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
So many of you asked about my annual Christmas tour.  I feel
terrible that it didn't happen in a more timely manner, but
here it is and I hope you enjoy it.
I do love Christmas (maybe a little too much) and I spend an
enormous amount of time decorating and then of course taking
it down and packing it away is equally as time consuming.
Plus, it is not any fun.  I never want the season to end.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
You will probably notice that I use a lot of of designs 
in my Christmas decorations.  I do have my favorites and they
tend to show up year after year.  My wish is that I had time
to stitch all the other designs out there by others that I love 
so much.  Maybe in another lifetime.

I hope you have enjoyed my
Christmas House tour.  I hate
for the Christmas season to end
but I am looking forward to a new
year of stitching friendships with
all of you.
Many Happy Stitches,
Sandra

    1. Hi Rita, What a wonderful thing to say. I do love to decorate but I don't think it is up to their standards. I need to stop collecting though. Iive run out of space. Happy New Year!

  5. Thank you for sharing the beautiful Christmas decorations throughout your house. I'm especially taken by your creche as it looks similar to mine (though yours is clearly the larger, deluxe version, LOL).

    1. Thank you Deb for your kind words about my decorating. My creche is a work in progress. I've been collecting all the figures here and there for years. It is not a set. I just bought the manger scene this year. It included Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus and the sheep. I know they belonged because they were glued in place. I hate to admit it but I only paid $8.00 for it. I nearly had a fit when I saw it. Needless to say I couldn't pay for it fast enough. Haha. Hope you have a wonderful New Year!

  8. Your home is a dream! I am making curtains for my home and did a design from Primitive Stitcher Picture Trail. But for my dining room living room and master bedroom I would like a fancier curtain. Can you tell me what type cloth you used on the curtains with the fringe! Did you make them? I think I can wing it but it would be nice to have a pattern.
