Vintage 70’s Crochet Maxi Dress Pattern…


I absolutely adore most vintage crochet patterns….there’s just something so essentially right about it….it’s timeless and yet retro all at the same time.

This pattern is from Kinzie Wool Shop on Etsy, I love the look of it…..I know, I know, I haven’t finished the lilac poncho yet….but I need a ready list of “next projects” Doesn’t everyone do that??

Georgia’s art project is coming along nicely….she has based it on the technique used by Elspeth Mclean


Now, art isn’t her favourite subject mainly because every time she hands anything in she seems to be told to change it or do something else to it…..correct me if I’m wrong, I thought art was an individual thing, a place to express things the way you see them, the way you want to do them….I think maybe this GCSE should be renamed Drawing and Painting Techniques because it surely is not Art…..anyway, I really like this and when it’s finished and she gets it back it’s going on my wall!

Definition of art: the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.

So, the snow, (the teeny tiny bit we had) has all melted but it will soon be time to light the fire….break out the wool and get hooking….
