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.

The Guardian Angel

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~

Patterns-I need to write things down

I've been back and forth with the angels from the previous posting. I managed to make 2 more, they were flat ones. My husband said he liked the one from yesterdays post better. I am to critical of my work, and so I've been fussing most of the morning with these.
 I have two angels crocheted,
 and now need to tie up the loose ends of them.
 I've changed up from the original and before I post this it will change again.
I don't have pictures of the blankets I made, but I can tell you that I got the pattern
Here those of you who have been by Olga's place know of the eye candy there. It is a lovely place, and she is gracious hostess who does have some lovely patterns to share for free,
and they are labeled as such.
 So, here is the finished products.  I thought I might like to make angels because I knew the great grandmothers of these babies. One of them was my husbands Grandmother, and the other the maternal Grandmother of the babies mom.  I can recall that they always wore angel pins. And since they are no longer with us, I thought the babies might like to know a little bit about their
Great Grandmothers, so in their memory I made the Angels.

And now...the finished products.....I apologize for the pictures, my disclaimer is I'm not a photographer and don't play one on TV.

On to the next....
Stop it!  I found crochet earrings!  I could be hooked on this. I know I'm a day late and dollar short.
Oh the lovliness of these..I'm looking for patterns, and I've seen some beauties beads and all  oh my. more item of interest.. my neighbor had a garage sale, they rummage around and find items to sell,  this was there 3 days. I spotted the first day but....holding to my what am I going to do with this while I myself are disposing of the my uneeded items?  It didn't cost me a penny..  Looks like it was homemade, maybe a little nic nack shelf, perhaps made by a son for his mom in the days gone by?
I like to think a little bit about the history of items. At any rate it caught my eye, I like the scroll work. I'm pondering what I might repurpose this for, I have a lovely little glass knob that might look pretty on it. They have a screen on the back of it, no doubt to prevent items from falling out.
