- 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.

A most glorious day
These last few days have been glorious weather wise.. cool, refreshing and breezy in the morning,
perfect for flappin on the line..I have washed my bed clothes and they are out on the line, flappin and enjoying the fresh morning air. Coffee tastes better outside, ever notice that? ( a random thought ) There is something about enjoy coffee and fresh morning air..:)
The days have been warm not hot and the night cool and wonderful for sleeping....
which I am getting better at...:)
I've put the hook down for a moment..I went gangbusters on the rippleghan, and it started to do just that ripple, and won't lay flat.. Oh bother !
So, before I invest any more time/yarn in it..I set it aside. I actually kind of like the size of it now, you couldn't snuggle under it, but I thought it might look good for small table. I havn't got to finish out the pattern yet, and since this is my sample piece, one of the days I'll pick up the hook and try to finish it off ( miniature style).
I feel like painting...so today, after I get a few things done I may " practice some more ".
Whereever & whatever you are doing...may it be glorious for you too!
