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.

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

There is always time for Crochet

A crochet clock I made  last summer, I think I need to repaint the hands off white, I think they will show up better don't  you? At the moment, I cannot recall where I recieved this marvelous idea. The doily though is a vintage pattern I believe 1951 named the gift doily.
.speaking of doilies..visit with Gloria

The doily clock is a wonderful idea and the "gift doily" is ideal for it. I've made that doily several times in Christmas colors.
Love it!
