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

With a wing & a prayer Crochet Angel
My Husband's cousin had twin girls in July and Sunday is the Christening. For their shower I crochet them each a blanket, not knowing their gender at the time, I chose that lovely minty green baby yarn, and a varigated with the blue,pink,yellow & same green. One was green with the varigated trim, and the other vice versa. I did'nt take any pictures of them.
So I decided I wanted to make Angels for their special day, and thought it a fitting gift. I had looked for several days for just the right pattern and didn't find one. So I fashioned up my own version.
This is one of them, I have not started the other one yet. And there are ends to be tidied up and what not and maybe some this or that. But I thought I'd share what I came up with.
Do you think it's ok?
I've since adjusted the wings somewhat since I took the picture. The other one will look different because I've followed no pattern and didn't write this one down. It needs something somethin, maybe after I get all the loose strings tacked down, I have some lovely thin ribbon shiny, and angel color like.
