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.

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

She is beautiful and I love the brown curls. Happy you found the thread. What color was it anyway? I bought #3 thread to do the pineapple doilies for my bar stool seats. Also, used a 50% coupon for a book of doilies. But, can't start any of these until I finish my other projects. The book is Leisure Arts. Hope your weekend is a good one!
