- 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 Christmas Gift, it's not what you think.
What's doing? I'm having my mornin cuppa, and took the opportunity to wrap some gifts. My youngest son & husband are camping with the Scouts this weekend.Waltzing the washing machine, and enjoying some time for me self :)
The other day I went to our library here in town and as I always do perused the Crochet books, it seems for a while they seemed to have nothing new but I found a gem, this might be a good Christmas Gift for someone, a new Crocheter, or someone like me who has been crocheting for years but still have to have so much to learn. It is a small sized craft basket or purse book, just right, but it is comprehensive. I'm not being endorsed for writing about this, just passing along good useful information for that special hook mover or aspiring one. I told a co worker about this book, and she said it is what she has been looking for. I've seen her crochet and it looks painful, she is trying to knit with her hook, but insists she can't undo the learning. I tried to give her a few pointers, but if you are a visual this would be the perfect book. I think this will help her.
