About Me

My photo
I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like
stitch at a time taken patiently.

A schneeeeeeeeeeek peek.....the GB sprawling ranch..

The formerly known as GB house, is now a sprawling ranch...a little larger than expected...still a WIP. I think the next time I make one of these little beauties, I will cut the cardboard first and then crochet to size. I crochet loose, it is a little bit to big for a house. I am thinking GB Church/Cathedral.. I completely failed at making the cardboard cut outs..they were most lopsided..DH helped and squared everything up and it all fit together..thank you Honey.. I wanted to rip it out and start over, but he spent time measuring and things the way men do, plumbing up the sides and whatever....So, I am keeping as it, because we spent about 2 hours of quality family fun he & I making this, and few laughs as well, as he marveled over my technical, and measurement skills. There is now a memory to go with the Cathedral...
One side of the Roof

or gingerbread Church,  so is the plan...Stay tuned for more reveals...I have a ways to go yet, the piping and trim, and the,etc....

The milk carton plastic ring wreath..the pinecones come from a little Charlie Brown pine at my younges school, I have collected quite of few of them, the work great on little projects like this.

Oh Faith, its beautiful what I'm seeing so far. The wreath and pinecones is adorable...can't wait to see it finished. My first thought when I saw the "range" was a covered bridge ... wouldn't that be neat! Have a wonderful, blessed day and weekend.

Glor, I like the idea of the covered bridge would be neat and the possibilities...You have a wonderful day too..

Hi Clara, what you see is all Ihave done...contemplating what to do next..working today/tomarrow,not much hook moving will be going on I'm afraid.
