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.

Put your wooly bullies on.....

We just got out of a cold snap and snow, much of you are familar with that scenario this time of year..
Today it is supposed to be 35 and we are having a heat wave before the bottom drops out, the predictions are for near zero next week. Such is the magic of wintertime, and soon Buckeye Chuck and
Puxatawny Phil will be making their appearances and see their shadows, or will they? 

I'm enjoying the cozy up inside time, trying to find something to amuse my hook.
I've never crocheted mittens or gloves before, how hard can it be? 
I began a purse, then started a tote with granny squares, but the whole cutting and weaving thing
makes me tired, and I loose interest. 

So, a mitten I shall try...
Remember...a movin hook is a happy hook....

Brr! It's cold here in SC also. They are calling for 9 degrees in the morning! And the kids start back to school! I agree about getting the hook going. Keeps you warm and your mind occupied!

Stay warm, negative temps here with very bad windchills, they are asking people to stay off the roads and stagger the drive into work if you have to go in. We got 10 inches of snow which is a lot for us in St Louis.
