- 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.

My hook is moving...how nice is that?
I've missed movin the 'ol hook these last few days, and when I found the tutorial for the doily clock assembly, I decided to remake the doily clock I did a year or so back. It is the same pattern,
1956 Gift Doily or it is also called Two Tone Doily..mine will have only one tone, and I have not yet decided what material I will use for the backing. The material in this picture is one of my favorites..I'll mix n match as I go along, we see how it "evolves " for each pattern does have it's own personality and charm...
