Welcome to... Crochet by the Sea. It is the simple, beautiful things which capture my heart.Keeper of my home, producer of beauty with hook and yarn, lover of Vintage Beauty and times of simple elegance. Seaside or Woodland, beauty found in nature, the simple lovliness of an uncluttered and treasured life, the simple path is my choice.
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.
~Oliver Wendell Holmes 1867~

Not into hustle bustle
FLY IT PROUDLY! Everyday
It's been a while since I posted here on a regular basis, as we all have drifted in and out of our blogging experience, friends have come and gone, moved on to other things. I've had this blog for a number of years and myself have questioned from time to time whether or not to continue, close down the shop, or try another venue.( which didn't appeal to me )
Crochet by the Sea has become over the years a part of my life, it is not only a creative outlet for me, but I've made some many wonderful friends and shared, learned, laughed and cried with them.
I keep coming back, and while blogging has changed somewhat and folks have decided to re invent the wheel elsewhere, I find that this is really the best for me, I'm all about keeping things simple and compact. Who knows maybe this will make a comeback, what is old is new to somebody else, there is nothing new under the son. In the meantime, this is a venue for me which allows me to connect, share and learn.
Well, I was going to bake bread yesterday, never got around to it. I decided to clean out my kitchen cupboard which held my supplies. I got rather tired of opening up the door, not knowing what was going to fall out, it was time for a cleaning. Threw away some expired things, used some of the containers I've been hoarding to actually store things in, and what do you know my spice table actually turns now, how about that?
I do have bread on tap this morning, and so that is what I'll be doing, as soon as I finish visiting with you and having my coffee. Speaking of bread, I got two new loaf pans, which I picked up at Walmart, made by the Pioneer Woman, these are study non stick lovely pans, and the make a nice size loaf of bread. I'll have to take a picture because I cannot find it online.
Oh and I wanted to talk about Calendula, my little garden pot is blooming...Anybody do anything special with Calendula? We'll talk again next about that, I look forward to hearing what you do with yours, and Lavender too!
