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 Ornaments Last post I promise

The last installment of the continuing saga of the Crochet Christmas Ball Ornament Covers...
I'm happy with how they came out. I do need to put some ribbon or something to hang them on the tree with. Never done this before, do you just tie a bow?  Hot glue it what? is such a learning curve isn't it?
So here they are in all their the the beautiful teal vintage depression glass bowl which belonged to
my MIL Auny Lucy...I've shared a few other things by this lovely lady, who I've never had the opportunity to meet . We would have gotten along splendidly I think....
Last post about these...PROMISE!
On to the next..finishing up a Thanksgiving Angel Hoop..Craft fair is October 19th....I don't think I will make anything else, I suppose I need to chronicle what I have for inventory,, and price them. I do want to make a bunting
crochet of course for the table front. Perhaps Hearts....

And now...full swing craft fair mode...finishing up the hoop Angel,
and I found some more items I had tucked away..and then maybe a few last minute additions if I can figure out how to tie them together...we'll see....

Very pretty Faith. I haven't made these types of ornaments, but I would think you could just slip a ribbon through your crochet and tie a tight bow. Good luck with you craft fair. Heather

I thought they were pretty before, but to see them on the ornament they are even more pretty. Great job.

Way back when I was on the newspaper in college, I interviewed a woman and her husband who had lived in the small, log home they built together. She gave us some dandelion wine (yes, under aged but what the heck) and some of her recipes. The thing I prized the most was a crochet Christmas ball ornament. Thirty+ years later it still hangs in a place of honor on my tree. I'm sure yours will be revisited every Christmas as well as it hangs on someone's tree.

The flowers make a pretty touch to your Christmas ornaments.
Never grow tired of seeing pretty crocheted items.
