- 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.

Crochet wip of the thread variety this time
I've not finished with my shawl yet, I have one more component I would like add. While thinking on it some, I've begun this little treasure. A candidate for next years County Fair perhaps? If not maybe someday it will go to my grand daughter albeit many years from now, if I have one. What a lovely heirloom don't you think? I'm working with colors I already have in the old stash bucket, pink and that frost green. The dress, jacket, and hat will be the green with pink in the blouse and lace.
It feels different working with the thread after many months of the yarn and large hook. I think my hands go through less motions with the smaller hook n thread.
I suppose most of you are familiar with the Craft Yarn Council or CYC, if not take a look here,
plenty of good information.
