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.

It was nice running into you at Micheals...

Hello!  Don't I know you from somewhere?  Oh yes of course Blogland..just around the corner from CBTS..we've chatted a few times havn't we? What am I looking for?  Well I need to finish up another Thanksgiving Angel and needed the hoop to assemble it together and she will be done. Our first stop was Pat Catans, I was looking for glass ornaments, you know the clear kind. No they didn't have any Christmas up at Pat Catans, but I did see some boxes of Christmas Trees.
I don't really like driving down here to Micheals, right by the highway and so many lanes, but today I faced my fear and drove myself here, I was a nervous wreck. But we made it, this is my son  Jake  comes along with me for conversation and some bonding time. And yes they had the ornaments just like Manager said they would when I asked some 4 months ago. You would think this might be something they would carry all year..but it is seasonal. 
What am I going to do with these ornaments, why crochet a beautiful cover for them to hang on the christmas tree, I'm hoping to sell a few at the Craft Fair in October. What are you looking for here at Micheals?
Here is the link for the pattern and tutorial about the ornaments I told you about...
so pretty...there is a link there to take you to a tutorial with the pattern. 
Gee it was nice running into to you, and I hope to see you again.

Thank you for the blog link....I can't wait to see yours. I might try one myself, but I have gauge issues...mine won't fit a Christmas ball, but it might fit a basket ball! :)

Sending hugs and blessings your way sweet friend.

I thought that was you the other day..girl you are looking good. I am going to go look at your link up now..I want to make some to hang on my crochet trees if I can adjust the pattern..maybe just a smaller thread and hook will do...Have a blessed day

P.S. Having checked the link.. Am I SEEING this right???? Does the project call for a 7-INCH ball? That's one BIG ornament, isn't it? I don't know where I'll find one of these myself, as I NEVER make it to Michaels, and they don't take orders online.. What to do?!

I thought the same thing, I went to Micheals and bought the smaller of the two they had on display, I'll get the size of the ones I bought when I get home.
