- 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 that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

We've never met or have we?
This is a blast from the past post, I blogged at one time every day....
I caught myself going over these treasures as a reminder of why it is
that I will not stop blogging...slowed down a bit until I have something to write home about so to speak..life has it's way of getting your attention, and so for now it has mine...so for now some nuggets from the past...
It sure seems like it...ah the wonder of the blogosphere...it amazes me at times how much a part of our lives are interwined, on a daily basis. And yet, we wouldn't know each other if we passed each other at Micheals, JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby. It's a funny thing I think about when I frequent these places, what if....one of you is there at the same time I am...it is doubtful for we are scattered about the globe...but it is a fun thing to think about...and I get giddy when somebody stops to take the time to chit chat...(not often)...in the old yarn isle...is it you? I wonder...
Thoughts are what keep us all " hooked " up together ( pardon the pun....I received this ever so lovely
from a dear friend, who I've never met...we correspond almost daily in one fashion or another, and yet
have never had the true pleasure of meeting or greeting each other in Micheals...
As my friend, and I call her my friend, for we have shared some tears, and prayers together, laughter and even a few dreams and what if's...together... She wrote in her card that Pansy is the flower for thoughts,
and that I am in hers.. This lovely potholder was made by Gloria over at Crochet Galore, we did the swap together, and she sent this lovely potholder and some other very lovely items to me in a Christmas Package..

How wonderous is this?
Pen Pals 2011 style....
3 years since I penned this, and Gloria has turned from my friend,
and now I call her my sister....
a benefit of blogging....
and isn't this a lovely potholder?
It adornes my "kitchy" cabinet, where I put special things....of honor...
