One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Vintage Hankies ~ Crochet Projects Continue

I'm sharing some very special hankies that belonged to my mother.  I am not sure what I will do with them yet.  I know for one idea, I will be using them to decorate around the house and possibly take some camping.









Wednesday I took my crocheting on the road.  To the dentist specifically.


 While digging through my closet these past few weeks, I discovered plastic rings I had gotten from a SCRAP store (before it closed).   I was able to get bags of items for a few dollars, so these rings cost me practically nothing.  This pattern required a 1 1/8 inch ring, and I have 3 rings that size.  I love this snowflake Christmas ornament so much, I may have to go out in search of more rings (or something to recycle) to make more of these.

 I've also finished 6 towel ring holders with leftover yarn.  I may make more of these for gifting ,and add a hand embroidered towel with it.  Not quite sure yet.

OH! You need to make one of those hankerchief quilts with your Mother's beautiful hankies! There are books on how to do it or Google it. There were several ladies in my quilt guild that made those quilts and they are beautiful and it sure looks like you have enough to do it!
