Grandma's Treasures

Recently Baby Cat and I were up in Port Angeles, Washington helping out at my sister and brother-in-law's yard sale.  We found some real treasures amongst the stuff that used to belong to my Mother.  My Mother was a crocheting genius and collected patterns her entire life.  There were so many it was pretty overwhelming!  We also found these sweet little molds that you use to crochet little shoes and hats, then you stiffen them so that they can stand alone.  I've included some of the ones my Mom made in this photo, so you can see how wonderful they are!  I think they'd make wonderful Christmas decorations.  What do you think?

There are several patterns in these books that we will use to make things to sell at the St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar, and on our blog.  Right now we just want to share these great things with you.

There was so much more there than we could bring back with us, because alas, life is too short, and space is limited. So we chose carefully and brought back things we really liked.  We hope you like them too!

  1. Very cute! I love the vintage-style poodles! xo Jennifer

    1. I am really anxious to try the poodle pattern, as well as the little lamb pattern. Right now I'm right in the middle of another project (Fairy Doll) so I'll have to wait until I've finished that before I tackle the dog or lamb.
