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.

work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Closing in on 30, and let's have some pie !

No, not 30 years old, I passed that milestone some twenty something years ago.  It's almost 30 degrees outside, the sunshine is out and about and all the dusting we had  of snow is now gone. Spring has rebounded.
I have wanted for so long to do two things, grow rhubarb and make a rhubarb pie. I'm still working on the first part.  But I did find some beautiful Rhubarb at the store yesterday, I only bought 2 stalks because it 5.99 a lb. Really? So I bought some strawberries to go with and this morning I fashioned up a pie. It's in the oven as we speak. Sometimes you have to leave well enough alone, and other times it's good to try something new. I did both today making that pie. I went back to the pie crust which works for me. I get ansy making pie crusts. I'm getting better at it.
Remember Lisa's squares from some posts back?  I bought a pillow form yesterday, and I have taken one of the squares and am going to finish it off to make the pillow top. I'd like to cover the pillow in fabric, she loves flowers and one may say that she is a Horticultorist by trade. So I thought something with flowers for the pillow, and then fix the crochet motif she crochet on the front of the pillow. I'm
not exactly sure how I will do this. ?  
Here is the link for Lisa's squares so if you havn't read about you can do so. It was a gift of the heart

This is the original as I received them. I have gone around 2 rows with the Ivory, and then I will finish off with that beautiful cranberry color, and I'm thinking of maybe a shell border, something
scallop, I love the scallop borders.

This crazy weather! The rhubarb pie sounds yummy. I haven't had that in a long time. I saw some pie mix in a can at Walmart last week! Loving your crochet blocks.
