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.

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

Even tangled yarn...does a body good somethimes..

I'm tackling the basement this week...1 hr per day...if I do anymore I won't be able to move
later in the evening.. so I spend 1 hour of good quality time down there..I'm clearing a path
and I found stuff.....these...Christmas Lights we bought when my son was a babe, he is almost 17 now.. Anyhoo...they were laying there not ever put away properly, because taking down the tree well, it's not a fun they were just tossed aside.
I managed to get them all untangled...thanks to Yarn...have you ever, well I'm sure you have if you ever done any knitting or one of the tangled messes?  I've spent hours and hours
on those, they are like jigsaw puzzles...some of them, we mark it up to the yarn winnning...and the scissors come out..and make short work of the entire thing...
I tackled this jumble of mess...I won this time  Yippee.....
So hats of to tangled yarn...even that came in most does everything which is somewhat of a most will be sure to run into again more prepared then you when you started.....

4 strands of candle lights...they really look pretty on the tree, and 3 extension cords later
it's all good now...

That's why I bought a pre-lit tree this year!

but when one of the strands go out and yes they do...they are good for a while, we've had for a few years, but have a tricky strand...that is finicky...I'd love to have a real tree...:)

Love the candle lights! I have been there both with tangled lights and yarn. We have the most gorgeous sunshine today. Loving this mild weather. I haven't had a real tree since being a child. Jim and I always put our tree up too early for a real one.

Oh I love the lights!

I really need to do what you are doing in the basement in my craft day.

Blessings and hugs to you my dear friend.
