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.

A trip to Micheals....I have a project, a pattern and some pretty yarn

What do you think of these colors..?   Soft Lilac, and the varigated is pretty and springlikeThe picture is not picking up the colors of the varigated, it matches just lovely with the Lilac.There is a strand of lilac in this yarn also.  I have a special project brewing.....Mum's the word.

 I'm also working on a pattern. I have crocheted a little basket a while back, and have done another one. I'll be posting the pattern and the picture hopefully this week. More to come...for now....look at these colors..... 

The little bag next to the yarn is all cushed up shells, very pearlike in nature...I love the shells like the Abalone and oyster, anything which has a pearlike sheen. These were on sale. I am looking for just the right clear glass jar to display them in..

                                        Enjoy your day....may it be filled with simple joys and abundance....
