I have been crocheting since I was 14 years old, and I LOVE it! I am an advanced crocheter too, so it's very easy for me to make what I want with crochet - I've made lots of stuff, sometimes even without a pattern!
The only problem is, it's not really "primitive"....early American needlework was sewn or knitted, I can't remember any examples of crocheted items. And most crochet has a Victorian look, which I try to avoid at all costs!
So, looking through those Colonial Homes magazines from my last post, one of the pictures was a blanket on a bed, and it was crocheted!!
Since I have no experience as a quilter, but I love patchwork quilts (and they cost hundreds to thousands of dollars!), this is the best I could do with my hook and yarn......!! ^-^
Here is another blanket that I'd like to make, I love the homespun/primitive look it has.....
Anyway, that's the only primitive looking crochet I've ever seen....maybe I need to learn to quilt???
*SIGH!! So the weather has been gorgeous the past 5 days or so - it's been partly sunny and COOL, only mid-70s for highs. Right now I'm sitting next to the open window, and I'm a little cold! What a wonderful final break from the heat right before summer....this will be the last cool air for a few months, I bet!!
Tomorrow I want to sand and paint the trim that I've been finishing with wood putty. Any maybe it's time to plant the basil and cucumbers? ^-^
