two crazy crafters

Actually, I think you could figure out the leaf placemats. You could give them as gifts, but not until Next Thanksgiving. Twyla

Hi!!! Long time no seen, I'm back in town! Your post reminds me of my intention to learn to crochet during the kids vacation...luckily I still have a couple of days to try before I make that potholder or that flower garland. You did the most amazing finds again. I have a lot to catch up, chat soon!

Oh yes, those are lovely--I especially like the blue aster trim. Alas, I am far too impatient to crochet!

You right that lady does look as if she is holding road kill LOL!!!
Come on get brave and learn how to crochet!!!


I have quite a few items that my great grandma had crochet... 2 cute little dresses...a ton of doolie type things and my personal favorite...pillowcase w/ pink flower edging.

I love to crochet. I'm currently working on a baby blanket. Take the plunge, start crocheting and soon you'll be putting those beautiful edges on everything.


I am constantly amazed at all of the beautiful things that can be created in crochet! Thank you for sharing all the lovely pictures.

Those are some great looking books! I think it's awesome a little hilarious that you have all these books and don't know how to crochet yet! Get on that, it's not as hard as it may seem! Start with yarn though, and then work down to the finer thread crochet would be my suggestion.


I love it! Road kill, you crack me up! I taught myself to crochet when I was 10, but oh my the time it would take to make these beautiful trims. They are just too fabulous though. I love those old pattern books. xo, suzy


sigh. those are beautiful. and i agree, stop buying the books until you at least have a hook and some stinkin' yarn lady!!


oh I love all the edgings! It reminds me of the pieces my parents have stuffed in a drawer somewhere that my great grandmother made.
