About Me

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.

stitch at a time taken patiently.

Little bit of craftin going on..

I've got my crafty on this week. I mentioned to you the other day I am going to enter something in the County Fair,
this is a big deal for me, what a hoot.  So in honor of that coming up pretty quickly, I've had to get out my hooks n thread dust them off, and finish up a project I'd started over the winter last year. I found some lovely material which I will show you today, isn't it lovely?  Fall is my absolute favorite time of year, and for once I actually found exactly what I was looking for, found this at JoAnn's. 

The camera didn't pick up the background, here is looks a bit more cream, it has a bit more yellw, and the leaves are off a bit, they are actually more green, but I rather like this color combo as well.  Getting this ready to go to the fair....Have you ever entered anything in the County Fair?

It is lovely. I am guilty at not finishing alot of my projects too. Fall is also my favorite time of the year.

Now the County Fair isn't that far off...I can deal with that.
I've heard some talking about Christmas in July...!!!
Maybe that is my problem, I don't start early enough.
Can't wait to see your finished product... ehem, entry.
I've never entered anything like that.
I think that fabric is so pretty.
