How I wish I could spend ALL of my time crocheting, and searching Victorian archives and sites...but, I must work. Sadly, this means I have less time for the things I love...I always make an effort though to get 'some' done every day.
My bearghan is coming along...I have only a couple more pieces to get done, and it will be ready for "show and tell."
It is day 7 of the bread starter, remember to stir with a wooden spoon!
I found a wonderful site! It is the Antique patterns library! There are many, many antique books, magazines and such that have been copied, clarified, and downloadable! Have a look!
Antique Pattern Library
I also visited the Yarn Lover's room...and they have some antique patterns as well. You may have to join this site...but it's free and there is a LOT of good information there, including crochet instructions.

I am absolutely SURE you are going to love these sites if you enjoy antique patterns.
Until Next time...
