Found it!


So, as in the way of every crafter, I am looking for something in my studio when I find something unrelated but more awesome!  I was pining to make this particular grandfather clock tapestry but the book is vintage and therefore will cost me +$30 to own by ordering from Amazon sellers.  Finding it on Ebay wasn’t cheap either.  So I was hoping to borrow it from a friend or get it from the library somewhere.

As I said, I was looking for something unrelated, {lime green seed beads to be exact – didn’t find them}, and my eye fell on my stack of vintage books.  And the blue spine with distinctive retro font. That said “Decorating with Crochet Halliday”.  *blink blink* The book is missing it’s dust cover with all the lovely photos of the projects inside.  Commence whooping & jubilation!

Let’s peek inside!

Table of Contents, lots of interesting and some very boring patterns.

My husband thought these were pretty awesome.  I may have to get him to pick out colours and make him one for his man cave. 🙂

Super happy I actually have this book in my collection!

As you can see from the messy background I got a beading fix in.  I made some really nifty bracelets I will be sharing soon!
