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

Movin my hook , it's a busy hook this week..
Last night I began working on the sleeves for the thread Angel, and to my surprise they didn't have to be affixed before stiffening, so I did a little of that, and worked on the Pretty Petals Doily/Potholder too....Has anyone ever used Mod Podge? I've never used it before, and I'm wondering if it will also stiffen up the thread of the Angel. I feel it could be a little bit more stiff. I may go ahead today and try the wings with the Mod Podge and see what happens. I'd really like to make one of these that actually retain their shape.
This day some bread dough is in the rising...having a cuppa...
Moving more of the hook today, and keeping it simple sometimes it is just what you need to do...I have a habit of always having something going on around the house..As I get older I hate to waste time.
It will be another hot one here and not a rain drop in sight....
It's funny sometimes how things happen in blogland..just about the same time I posted the pretty pink Zinnia, and thought about making the pretty petals potholder, what do you know, I get a message from
Stichy McFloss @http://stitchymcfloss.blogspot.com/ that she was thinking of doing the same pattern, she suggested a CAL, why of course why now? Gloria @ http://glor-crochetgalore.blogspot.com/ liked the pattern and she is in, and Vikki @http://byhooks4u.blogspot.com/ too....lets all make a bouquet of these
beauties...add your pretty petal to the bouquet of color....be sure to stop over and visit and see what lovlies these gals are making...
Happy Weekend to you all
