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.

stitch at a time taken patiently.

Crochet Crinoline Lady...WIP

This color is Terra Cotta, perfect for fall and the changing of the leaves time of year, It is my all time favorite time of year...This will be for the craft fair, and she will be on a wreath either straw or grapevine, adorned with fall ribbon and some flowers.This is the thread I got from Herschners that I mentioned a few posts back. Cooler weather is prevailing here after 2 days of really hot we hit 100 on the heat index,followed by and 88, this morning there is a cooler breeze and it is lovely. I have begun to pull out the fall decorations...and am thinking of the beauty wonderfullness that is fall.

blessings to you all...

A pretty color and yes, perfect for this time of year. We hit over 100 on the heat index. It was truly miserable Friday and Saturday. Much better today and I am so glad. Your items are growing for your craft sale. I am sure it will be a really good one. There aren't too many good craft shows in this area. Advertised as craft shows/sales, they are merchandise instead. Sad...Have a wonderful Sunday!

It sounds lovely, anxious to see it/her as she progresses.

well, the last time I was at the school craft fair as a patron, it was all merchandise and a "few"
crafters, people were walking out
empty handed. That was 2 years ago...we'll see. I was disapointed when I went..not interested in Avon, or Pampered chef, and there was a booth there with something
about tatoos...go figure..Well, at
least I'll have no competition..hee hee....thanks to all who commented.
