The Girlfriend Scarf

Sophistication and classic design make this the perfect gift for your girlfriend (or yourself, I won't tell). The Girlfriend Scarf was created with a luscious textured shell pattern using a high end yarn in shades of pinks, taupe and sage green. It looks even more beautiful in person and makes a perfect gift because you don't have to worry about size with this piece. Find out more here.

Vintage Marguerite

So, my lovely mother showed me the most beautiful hand crocheted bedspread made by my great grandmother who passed when I was a young girl. It is so detailed and weighs a ton. To imagine the time this piece took is simply daunting to me.

I looked for it on ravelry and learned the vintage pattern's name is Marguerite and although there are some people charging on other sites, I was able to find a pdf link to the entire Priscilla Crochet Book Bedspreads free (page 33). I believe the original book was 25 cents and published in 1914, though my grandmother would have created her's a bit later. The techniques shown in this book are brilliant and invaluable.
I'm happy my mother shared this piece with me as it has allowed me to know more about a women I barely remember and imagine the time and love she put into this wonderful piece. The bobbles and perfect stitching is most amazing.

What stories from long ago have been shared with you?
