About Me

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.

Oh Faith, it is beautiful. I love the color combinations. Love that pretty cream on the last rows, it looks so pretty. I am doing thread for another little dress potholder and yarn for my afghan squares. I do love thread crochet. It has the lacy look I love. So what is next? Can't wait to see. Hope your Sunday is beautiful. Ours is looking that way. Hugs!

A very pretty doily.
I can see how detailed your work is. This brings to mind my childhood when my mother and grandmother and gr
eat grandmother used exquisitely done doilies to protect furniture and as well sofa's. I can remember the job of furniture polishing, and carefully removing and replacing these doilies. Mom generally did her's in whites and ivory, I like your gentle, pastel colours.

I've just neared completing a baby afghan in granny squares, and found that crocheting is quite satisfying.

I'll start something new soon I think.

Faith, thanks for dropping in on my blog, and leaving a comment!I think it's wonderful to have the opportunity to meet and connect with new friends this way!
Wishing you a good day!

So pretty Faith! You have so much patience.. much more than I... I can't seem to still long enough for any kind of handwork unless it's writing or painting! I have had some sewing spurts over the years...
Happy Sunday!

Your Doily-ghan turn out so pretty, I have wanted to make one for so long, but have too many projects to catch up on before I start a new one. I can't wait to see what you come up with next.
