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.

What's doing ?

Let's see, what's doing?  hmmm....
Moving the hook, doing some re arranging in my kitchen, staying inside when I don't have to go out. 
Soon I must leave to pick up my son at school, and then begin the nightly ritual of supper, dishes, and hook moving with me feet up...that's what I'm talking about...:)
We are in another cold snap, but the sun is shining and it is cheerful albeit cold ( frigid). 
I saw a purse in the spring edition of Crochet! magazine I wanted to try, of course the yarn could not be found, and so I found an ombre which is pretty. . I'm not sure how this will look when done so it may transform into something else like a bag or tote.  I'd like to make one in the colors shown. They are crisp and compliment each other. 
A trip to Amish yesterday, and I stocked up on bulk yeast..there isn't anything like it and for love nor money I cannot make a decent bread with store bought packets or jar yeast. I used to, what has changed? 
So today I made 2 loaves and it smells homey and comforting today, what a wonderful aroma.

isn't this so cute?

Good luck with the purse. Calling for cold weather here; hope no snow.

I've been learning to knit...IT AIN'T EASY! lol...
I don't have a problem with store boughten yeast...but I like to buy my wheat flour at the Mennonite Bakery. I love that stuff. :)

I can almost smell that yummy bread all the way down here! :) We are a balmy 10 outside today....I miss Spring. :)

Love the new hooky project you've got going. That purse will look so cute. Looking forward to seeing updates on your blog.

Hugs and blessings always sweet friend.
