- 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.

Chill in the air, bread in the oven...what could be better?
Fall seems to have arrived in my neck of the woods, there is a crispness to the air,and now the leaves should change, we still have many trees with green leaves, it has been a different fall then we are used to...a pre curser for this winter? BRRRR! we'll see. We made it through our first craft fair. Will I do another, not sure. This wasn't a large event, and so there wasn't a large amount of potential buyers. We went through long periods of just sitting. I almost made table cost, short $6.00. If compliments were worth $, then I made table cost plus. Compliments galore. No cash. I had no competition. So I don't know. It was something I wanted to do, and I have done it, whether or not I will do it again, remains to be seen. Met some other lovely ladies, and learned a few tricks of the trade for a posssible next time. Still with the internet problems, I've been trying to post since Sunday. There are pictures to take the package I received from Vikki at her give away...I've started another Irish Rose Doily, and will some of the thread yarn I got in the giveaway package. So pictures I hope will be forthcoming. Hoping to be around and play catch up with all of you..soon!
