- 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

stitch at a time taken patiently.

Moving the hook....WIP
The Christmas tree, the picture doesn't do it jusice...I just love the combination of colors here,
a soft sage green, cranberry and white...I have only 1 ball of this...I'm hoping I can stretch it out to the end, I'm on row 40, and have 29 more to go. This is the 2nd attempt, the first one I didn't like,
tension was off, you know how it is starting a new pattern, at least for me, I'm tense and my stitches are off. It is going much better this time. The branches are done last, maybe I'll do those in all white,
or if I have it a sparkly white christmasy yarn...
Enjoy your creativeness today.....
