- of course I would not be as crazy as that -
but I will find a place for a little crocheted curtain depicting a castle
"My home is my castle"
I found the pattern in a German magazine: Liebes Land, Nr. 4/April 2012
But don´t you think that I bought the magazine
No - DH and I made our walk through the village on a late afternoon
when people had put out their waste paper to be collected
and what we saw in front of a house was:
heaps and heaps of wonderful different magazines all about the themes house - garden - crafts and
other beautiful things -
and published last year (2012)
so not really old
We talked to the very congenial young lady if we could take them
She was happy that she could make us happy
So everybody was happy and
we went home to get the car
and load those 20 kg of "waste paper"
for me a treasure and many hours of lovely browsing and reading
for quite some time
(and I even see DH browsing - old houses are so interesting to look at)
Now, this piece of a curtain will have a point and I tried and unravelled at least 6 times
till I found the right way - when it is large enough crocheting goes on in a straight way
till the design will start
It will be my work in our holidays at the Adriatic sea.
We both love second hand shops and like to recycle material
We -we? he! - seldom are throwing away anything.
(Well, I am doing it secretely from time to time, ha!
What the eye does not see the heart does not grieve over!)
