Twyla on Tuesday

Hello ladies!
As you know I love searching for vintage images and often the reason is because
I love sharing these beauties with all of you!
I found this little lovely last weekend.  It is a postcard and the first one I have ever found that
has a cloth like cover.  I believe the picture is printed on the fabric that feels like silk.
It is pretty worn, but the beauty is still there.

Shortly after I last shared a picture of one of my afghans I had an email from Sandy of 521 Lake Street
Would I make a special order afghan?  Would I?!   It made me very happy that
she is pleased with her afghan.  You can read about it here.

Problem is, I love making them so much that I can't stop myself.  I am having such fun with
color.  I also love naming my afghans.  The one above I call Pink Lemonade.

This one is Strawberry Fields.

This one I call Granny's Garden.
This picture below shows the detail of how I finish the edges of the afghans.

The one below is called Playdate.  I have never been very good at tooting my own horn,
but I have decided to list these afghans in our etsy and invite you to take a look.
I think they would look great as accents in your home.

I'll close this week with this little plate that I also found this past weekend.  It is made in
Japan and should have wicker handles.  I didn't mind the fact that the handles were gone because
I am going to string ribbon through the top two holes and hang it on the wall.

Thank you, friends, for stopping by our place today and letting me share a little bit of
my world with you.
Wishing you all much happiness!

Playdate and Strawberry Fields is my favorite but they are all wonderful. I get to smile each time I see your afghans and think fondly of my mom crocheting her afghans just like yours.
Thanks as always for the memories.

Good morning Twyla, I'm off to work but wanted to begin my day with a hello to you. I am enjoying your fun in creating each of your afghans and the names that you choose. I think that makes them all the more special. Sandy's afghan turned out wonderful! Have a great week ahead! Elizabeth

I saw the afghan that you made for Sandy last week, and the colors were just perfect for her! And I saw the one that you so kindly sent to Holly as a housewarming gift. I just love the lacy edges of your afghans. They make me want to learn to crochet really badly!

Love all your wonderful afghan names, Twyla! All the colors are wonderful. I slept with mine last night and covered my lap with it this morning! I love to look at it. :)

That plate is really pretty. I hope you show us when you have it hanged. I've never seen a plate with whicker handles. How did you know it was supposed to have them?

Have a great day, sweet friend! ♥

You should toot your own horn because those afghans are beautiful. Mine took me over a year to complete. You must have some fast crochet skills!!
