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.

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.

Crochet Crinoline Lady Preview

I'm not quite there yet...but the crochet portion is completed. A few loose ends to tidy up. And then...maybe what I have envisioned will work. Do you like the background material?  Rather vintage looking/Victorian don't you think?
oops...I forgot the arms...working on are not seeing things..
I did start out with all cream/white...I changed it up and thought the green would stand out better against the material...

Here is where you can obtain the pattern.

Blog hoppin....come join me....

Very pretty! Hello dear Faith - I saw you on one of my older comments and knew it had been some time since I've visited. Been very busy with the food blog & the grandbabies. I have THREE now, can you believe it. We just got home from spending the day with them - whew! I am not as young as I used to be for sure. Looks like you have been busy. Beautiful work, as always!!
