Sandra Sullivan has been designing primitive Americana cross stitch for over 20 years! She has a distinctive, gentle, and relaxing style that is timeless! We have begun to highlight some of the more recent favorites... samplers, stockings, ornaments... lots of variety! Deep, country colors of browns, taupes, rusts, golds, and cremes... they fit almost any decor. Most are available as leaflets. Now Sandra's daughter, Hollis, has also joined her under the name of Hollis Designs.

Personalize this with your favorite little girl or boy's name... the verse reads "Here He comes bringing joy to a sweet little boy (or girl)," then your preferred name.

Finishing approx 3 x 4, Santa is flying through the air above the village - but the lights are still on in the windows... so you'd better stop stitching and get to bed quick! Presented as a chart, coded for DMC or hand-dyeds. Add a star embellishment from your stash if you want that extra touch.

2020 Releases: Snow Joyful and Santaville
A couple of cute designs have arrived in plenty of time for next Christmas! All are charts, with embellishments suggested, but not included.
Snow Joyful is an ornament-sized design that finishes about 3 x 4 on 30ct fabric. Mixtures of DMC and hand-dyed floss, the Santa features some different colors of Wisper thread - a very thin furry thread.

Santaville is cute! It measures about 3 x 15 on 18ct linen over two, and can be stitched with #5 Pearl cottons or flosses. Sandra suggests you to finish it into a drum or windowsill tuck... it is embellished with buttons on both ends... the tiny sheep are only 3 stitches high and the snowman is only 7!

Delivering Peppermints and Candy Canes from Homepsun Elegance - click to see more Delivering Peppermints and Candy Canes
Homespun Elegance has new design -- an Owl-Santa is doing the deliveries with his cute candy-bucket! Stitched on R & R's 30ct Mink -- regular Natural or Khaki Aida looks great as well (good fabric alternatives). DMC or Week's flosses are called for, and there are amber shell buttons used on the wagon wheels down at the bottom. (Use the darker mangy side of them!)

The peppermints at the top can be cross-stitched, or made from white buttons with red stitches over them to look like mints. (We thought of the JABCO peppermint buttons as well -- you can soak them in coffee to get them darker.) Lots of cute options here, this finishes approx 3-1/2 x 5-1/2 on 30ct -- Sandra has used Week's Merlot Wool for her backing -- it'd make a stunning pillow background!

Peace To One and All from Homepsun Elegance - click to see more Peace To One and All
A peaceful pastoral scene... you could fall asleep counting all those sheep! At first, I thought this was Christmas... but there is green grass... and the title talks about A Summer Landscape.

I love that small scenery at the bottom... you could even leave off the wording! Offered as a chart, the entire piece finishes approx 5 x 7 on 30ct.

Rounds A Plenty II -- Halloween ornaments from Homepsun Elegance - click to see more Rounds A Plenty II -- Halloween
Homespun Elegance has designed little Halloween balls to match their Christmas Ornaments! The CUTEST little things... these are stitched on (really anything you want) 28ct Natural linen, and the stitching measures only 1 x 5 inches in size. (Scraps of misc fabrics are perfect!!!) Itty bitty stitching in Weeks and DMC flosses, you then hand-tack the needlework onto rounds of wool, you can see the hand stitching in the pic. Top with a cool button and a string hanger, stuff the round a bit, and you're finished!

Each ball measures approx 2 x 2 x 2-ish. All 5 designs are offered in one chart. Buttons, wools, fabrics are all offered separately, and although we have everything and can send you bits and pieces of whatever you need... your stash might have it all too!

Sheep May Safely Graze
Sheep May Safely Graze from Homespun Elegance -- click to see moreOne of Homespun Elegances newest releases, this is a neat one that coordinates with Wishing Thee Freedom, Warmth, and Plenty, along with Cinnamon Stitch Christmas XVIII. The main pic is surrounded on three sides with a border, verse rests along the bottom. All of our shop models are finished into pillows, complete with lavish decorator trims, and they look stunning!

The 'guest of honor' in this particular piece is wearing a coat that is stitched (over a base of crosses) in Lazy Daisy stitches of Rainbow Gallery's Wisper thread, for a loopy, furry effect. Although alternate DMC colors are listed, you'll want to work this on the 28ct Amber, using all the neat Weeks, Crescent and Gentle Art overdyeds! Finishes approx 8-1/2 x 5, Sheep May Safely Graze is offered as a leaflet, buttons are separate.

Peace on Earth
Homespun Elegance has released a GREAT new set of designs... this is only one of my favorite five!!! Peace on Earth features the Olde Colonial Pointed Linen pillow that is stitched, and then buttoned down in the center. Homespun Elegance has several other designs on this little pillow -- even ornaments -- and they're all just wonderful! Peace is offered as the leaflet, with pillows available individually. The colors are luscious bricks, teals, golds, cinnamons, mosses and browns... all accented by Homespun Elegances Olde Brass Buttons! Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men... angels watch over the tiny village.

Olde Brass Buttons
This is a wonderful collection of heavy, antiqued brass buttons designed by Sandra Sullivan. Embellishing most of Homespun Elegance's designs, these buttons are just awesome! Heavy on the weight and primitive feel, you can use these on so many projects, they look really good with overdyeds and wools. We've shown the entire collection here. Each button is available individually, so enjoy shopping!!!

We Will Adore Him
A primitive Nativity scene, stitched on 18ct Natural Linen in overydeds and Wisper threads, this finishes approx 8 x 12. Featured are five antiqued brass Homespun Elegance buttons -- very subtle. The sheep are stitched in Colonial Knots, for a raised, bumpy look, and the angel's collar is stitched in Lazy Daisy Stitches. Very pretty, lots of Molasses, Maple Syrup, and Chestnut colors! Available as the leaflet, we have the buttons as well.
