- 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.

Remember me neighbor?
I hope that you are all well, it's been a long time, I see there will need to be some catching up to do, cleaning up this home blog is in order. A little time away has been a good time away, getting things done which needed to be, catching up with life and special moments. It's been very hot here in NE Ohio, and today, we have a much needed cloudy day, for I do rather tire of endless sunshine and hot dry days, it will give the plants some reprieve from the heat. I do hope we get some rain and soon. I am looking forward to the cooler more billowy white cotton ball clouds, and gentle cooling breezes which we are more used to here in Ohio. Fall is around the corner, my favorite season.
I've not baked any bread in a while, a long while, but did make a strawberry rhubarb pie yesterday. It must have passed muster because there is only 1 piece left. I usually will can apples for pies, and this year, I think I will add some strawberry rhubarb to the mix, for the days when the oven will get a workout, when the snow flies, or we just need a taste of summer.
I am moving the hook, ( never stopped ), Putting the hook n yarn to good use, I've joined the Prayer Shawl Ministry at my Parish, we meet every month. I love sitting with the ladies talking crochet and learning new things. My youngest will be starting High School in the fall, and continues to work toward his Eagle Badge in Scouts. He is only 14 and 5'9", he bends down now to kiss his mother, so funny.
Till next time,
