- 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 that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

I was a woman without a pattern....
and a hook which needed to move...You've all been there...It is most frustrating. For year I have wanted to make placemats for the Christmas and this year seems to be no exception. I have some lovely Christmas type yarn I bought in bulk 3 in a pack at Pat Catans last year, just knowing I would want to make something with, the yarn base is white, and has sprinkles of a light rose burgundy/and soft green. I made a Christmas tree out of this yarn last year. I like the color combination and figured I could do something with it. So, her I am again with the placemats. I rather like vintage patterns, and seek them out first. I found a pattern at Red Heart which I like, it's oval and two tone, I have plenty to make placemats with...And so the hook will be moving tonight. Which makes me a happy gal.....here's the link
Were going to be having a CAL, and soon I'll have that hook dancing.....
