Crochet Vintage Lovely

Last year when I did the craft fair, and even before then I've been telling myself that I need to move on and take my Crochet on the road, so to speak. And here it is a year later, and I've not done anything about . Today I did go to the library and I found 2 books which I hope will help me
jump start myself.
Handmade TO SELL by Kelly Rand
Craft Inc. by Meg Mateo Ilasco,
I'll be giving these the look see and taking notes. 
The time is now, today. 

 This is truly a vintage item. My MIL was doing some purging and ran across this, and knew it would find a home with me. It is over 50 years old. Given to her by Aunt Lucy,  I've talked about her here before, it was given to Aunt Lucy by one of her friends, Mom couldn't remember her name,
 isn't it gorgeous? It is added on to a pillow case, what handiwork, beautiful lovely stitches made by a kindred soul.

3rd capelet


Finished up this one in about 2 days, I need to finish up the flower. The color is black, in Caron Super Soft Solid. The pattern can be purchased from the originator, and you can find that in a previous posting here, or at my Ravelry account. It is a lovely pattern and works up very quickly.
I did make this one a little longer then the first and 2nd one.
Been on my feet alot yesterday and today, and my back doesn't appreciate one bit..
my dishes are done..and I'm off to the heating pad.

Capelet #2 off the hook

I'm a little low on yarn for the afghan now, I'll need to make a yarn run, but it'll have to wait until pay day rolls around again. So for now, I'll finish up some things, and begin new ones with the yarn I have plenty of. 

I have to put the clasp on the back of rosette, and then she's all done .  I'm hoping to get this to
the crochet shop for consignment, this one and the pink one.
The burgundy crochet piece as the backdrop is a shawl I am working on.
