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.

WIP Crochet Poncho

I've got something on the hook, it's about time.  I'm making a poncho for a friend of my son for Christmas. She likes purple, and purple she will get, it is a surprise. This poncho is such a breeze to make, a very enjoyable piece to work on, and who, doesn't love the granny stitch? I think I will have it completed by then, I do 3-4 rows a day.

We've got November weather today in NE Ohio, breezy, cloudy, and chilly ( I actually don't mind ),
I've got some shortbread Thumbprint cookies in the oven for my youngest school class. They are having a  celebration for those who attained Honor Roll the 1st quarter, I'll brag just a bit and say my son did make honor roll, they are having a pizza party and asked the parents if they would send in desert.

I do have one more row done since I took this picture, it a lovely shade of lavender, this is all done with Caron's Simply Soft, a favorite yarn of mine, especially for accessories as the yarn is soft and shimmery.  I am not compensated for that, it is just my opinion about the yarn.
Too da loo !
