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.

~Oliver Wendell Holmes 1867~

I havn't forgotten

Oh Dear me! I've not posted the pictures of the bounty of vintage books of the crochet kind from my kindred friend Bernice. I havn't taken the pictures yet, I seem to run out of daylight. Been doing a bit of spring cleaning of the basement kind, we have accumulated way to much, so it will be Goodwill's turn to get a bounty. I ordered some lace yarn by Paton's, I found a shawl pattern I want to make, it will hopefully arrive next week so I can begin. I was inspired by a shawl while watching Daniel Boone, love that show, anyway Mrs. Boone usually throws on a shawl which can be rather scarf like, now I want one. Wish I could wear the dress too, that is of another matter isn't it? I really was born in the wrong time zone.

I've made a pie today, I have some custard we bought in Amish some time ago, and some strawberries from last year in the freezer, I think it will do nicely for desert this evening. I hope to get the items to goodwill today, and I found some material which will make a nice backdrop for the pictures of the bounty found a few weeks back.
