And now...I present to you a few vintage pattern books...I hope you like them..
Can you tell that I am interested in so many things,going in so many different directions..and at times I get befuddeled as to what to try next.
It's been a few years now,since I made the one and only bracelet and necklace I ever made with safety pins., and surprisngly, they were quite pretty. I gave them away,I'm just not much of a jewelry person..although I think most is so pretty and other women look so great wearing their lovely pieces of jewelry. I would be happy to tell you exactly when this and the other books were put out, the sad truth is,I'm taking these pictures from one of my files..the pattern books are stored away.
Next is the No Sew Hoops. Not so long back,everyone was making these little hoops and in country homes, they were hung in many different areas. I kinda wish it was still in style,it would be a small project for me to do.I may make one anyway...only, make an applique hanging in a hoop. I love to applique..it's most soothing to me, almost like crocheting with lovely,fluffy,soft beautiful yarn..and watching the afghan get bigger and bigger.
Next..the little jar lid covers. I think they're just the cutest things..and would look good almost anywhere. They wouldn't be at all difficult to make,and should crochet up quite fast.
And last..is the little book of patterns for crocheted animals.When my sons were small,I made all sorts of crocheted and stuffed animals. Remember the patterns for the little soft animals that were jointed..they were just kinda flat. Wish I still had those patterns.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and enjoying their visiting about on Vintage Things. I know I will be..I just love this day..so I will probably meet you somwhere in my visiting. At my place,the coffee and tea will be on the little tea table to the right... and the tea sandwiches and dessert tray are on the larger table. Please,feel free to help yourself. Sit and rest yourself awhile,it's always a pleasure to welcome you.
Happy Vintage Things Thursday..I wish for you a lovely weekend..
