- 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.

Catching up with Crochet
Tis a fine day for doing indoor kind of activities. The sky clear and bright, bitter cold, and so some fresh bread in the hearth this afternoon it has risen and is being transformed in the oven as we
visit. An excellent day to go through the stash to see what it is that I do have, and what can or might be done with it. Sorting and cleaning up in the basement, it's time for a huge trip to Goodwill when the warmer breezes prevail, for sorting and considering is being done.
I've went through all the yarn that I have, and what was not rolled into a ball is now joined with the other spheres in my wicker laundry basket. I have decided that for now this is a good home for all the colors in my crochet cache. I think I might have the makings for a few poncho's in there, some interesting color combinations. My old friend the thread has been separated out and is in a container all it's own.
Here is a picture of the yarn I'm making the next poncho with in another lovely basket my MIL gave to me just for this purpose.
