- 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.

Vintage Linen for Easter Time
This beautiful piece I bring out every spring..My MIL gave this to me, and I use it as part of my springtime Easter decorations, she does beautiful work and this was done some time ago. It is a treasure for me. There is open cutwork around the edge the camera didn't catch.
The piece is round with the design repeated around, I love the look of the baskets and delicate
flowers, each tiny stitch in perfection making a beautiful design.
