I received a huge box of goodies from sweet Marybeth (Thanks!). There were lots of vintage finds, including these old wooden spools and some very fabulous crocheted items, like an apron and a doily with red roses–so pretty! It was a lovely package and quite a surprise.
Other goodies around the web, from the Flickr craft book group. I really like the idea of a patchwork rug that’s more like a log cabin pillow. I made a rug for the bathroom that has held up surprisingly well. It’s been in use for about a year now and still looks fresh and clean, and it washes well. I even used white. Quel surprise!
And aren’t these sweet treats delectable? I’m a sucker for pastry and pink. I doubt I’ll ever get around to making anything like this, but I do enjoy looking at them.
