- 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.

work at your pattern it will come out a

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?
