- 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.

the hook is moving so slowly these days..and stash bustin
But, I am moving it....Lost interest for now in things which I havn't an inspiration for, sometimes it's in my head, but I cannot get it to translate over to an item...so for now I'm making a granny ripple ghan, not a great big, but one just big enough to cover up with. This will be my 4th or 5th one, once I get past the original pattern rows it flows much better, and progress is made.
I don't think I'll have enough to make one entirely on stash...you know how you have alot of one color and wee bit of another? Rain, we are in need of rain...it sprinkled randomly over the area this mornin...so I'll be watering with the hose my wee garden..I would like to make a rain barrel...and paint it oh so pretty, it will be for decoration only unless we get some rain...
Wishing you all a wonderful day...
filled with opportunities for creativity....
