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 that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

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.

....one 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.
