My daughter, Tiffany, has had so much fun selling jewelry and crocheted items through her Etsy account
(
https://www.etsy.com/shop/WorldBuilderCrafts?ref=search_shop_redirect) that I’ve decided to open my own Etsy site. I will announce the link as soon as I’ve uploaded my very first items.

While my daughter favors the modern approach, my style is toward the antique. I’ve been crocheting since I was 12 years old and have collected a wide variety of old books, such as the February 1950 WORKBASKET pictured here. The heart doily appeared on the cover of that issue.

I have two of the dainties completely crocheted. My task today is to hand wash them and let them dry flat overnight. Tomorrow I’ll lightly starch / iron both and add the big satin ribbon bow and the narrower organza around the scalloped edges. There’s also a small heart charm to sew into the heart’s tip.

I hope to have the items uploaded to a new Etsy account by the end of the week. I’ll let you know when that happens.
