Vintage Crochet Lines

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.

Vintage Linen & heirloom

My dear MIL made this many years ago. She does beautiful work and still at age 80 works her craft.This is a medium sized cut work piece and this design is repeated around,, I keep it out year round to give cheer and touch of elegant grace. Thought fitting to show you the basket as it is Springtime and Easter Time.

What lovely, delicate stitchery - I hope I can keep my eyesight and the use of my hands through my old age because I'd be lost without being able to crochet (or knit)...

Have a wonderful week :-)

What a beautiful piece. There is nothing that could compare with this. Such a treasure. I can imagine it brings such joy to have it out and see it. Have a great day.
