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.

The Guardian Angel

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.

~Oliver Wendell Holmes 1867~

Finished WIP the granny ripple & used up some stash..

On to the next.....Pretty Petals, hotpad or doily like Stichy is doing? Hmmm....I'll have to check my yarn
stash.  I repeated the Angel m the sugar water, and then I'll sponge on the Mod Podge Matte.  I still need to crochet some arms...oh bother, I should have done that before I stiffened her, I was looking at it yesterday and noticed I forgot her arms...OOOOPS, so I have those, and the preety petals...I started it out already as a potholder...didn't get that far that I cannot change it...I am thinking doily though....I have almost 2 balls of
#10 thread in warm's on...I'm making a pretty petals doily....

What's on your hook?

I love your granny looks so cozy!

I am so glad we are doing the CAL. I sent you an e-mail.

I am headed now to the stitchy chair to start my doily.

Blessings always :)

A doily sounds beautiful and of course you know I love doilies! Your afghan is really pretty. I like the color combinations. I will have to pop over to Stitchy's and see her doily. It is H-O-T here again. I was thinking yesterday that I am ready to get back to my crocheting. I have been doing embroidery with Chloe along with my own. Looking forward to seeing your angel. They are so beautiful!

That sounds just like me, jumping ahead of myself with a pattern. I hope your angel turns out okay. Can't wait to see it. My mil made several small ones years ago especially for the Christmas tree. I shared with my daughters. They are so pretty.
It has been another hot day here. I am so ready for fall.

I do think the heat has rattled my brain, I sent you 2 comments thinking that the first one did not go through.
