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".

I'm Thankful For. . .

Good Afternoon Everyone!
As Thanksgiving draws near I think about what
I am thankful for and there are so many things that I could
never list them all.  At this time though I would like to
 mention a few.  I am thankful that my husband, Lehmer,  
recovered from a serious illness, Hollis and I 
avoided serious injuries in an automobile accident,
 new members were added to our family and the
families of our friends, and Faye, Lehmer, Cameron,
 Hollis, Ethel, Doris and all those that help with
 Homespun Elegance.  Also, that all of my friends and
 other family members are doing well.  Last but not least 
I am thankful for all of the friends I have made through
 this Blog.
Since I closed my shoppe I have missed being
with people who love needlework, so in a way, 
you have helped fill that void and I am so
grateful to you.
This little "freebie" graph is a little thank you
 for becoming my friends.  Bless you and
"Blessings To All"
(Just click on the graph and text
and then print.)
I want to take this time to thank all
of you who have sent me comments and
emails about my Blog. It means a great deal 
to me. I wish you and yours a blessed 
Thanksgiving. Hope you will find time 
for some
"Merry Stitches during the holiday.
