- 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.

A little Crochet Thread Potholder Dress..
I worked up this little number this evening, it will be in the craft fair inventory....maybe one more..hee hee,
I can't help myself... I of course need to " finish" this off, it will have a little belt, and of course trim up the loose ends, and affix the tiny buttons...
Hope your day is a Creative one....
Questions about this little dress...I always forget the details... The pattern calls for sport yarn...I used
thread size 8 I think, I have no wrappers to tell, I know I have size 10 thread which this isn't, (too thin),
you need to use 2 strands.. This is thicker thread I want to say size 8...and this makes it a decent size...
thank you for all your sweet comments....I'm glad you like the color combo...it is outside the box for me...so if you all like it..maybe somebody at the craft fair will tool...Thank you..
