There are so many things going on right now so it has been hard to keep up with this blog. I wanted to let you all know that I am going to be starting up again. To start with how about this sweet baby sweater “Pearls and Lace”. I made this up before my daughter went into the hospital last week and have not had time to share it with you until now. It is ready for orders in sizes 0-3 months and 3-6 months. You can also order the bonnet, booties, and blanket. Get your order in now for that baby shower you have coming up.

Pearls and Lace Sweater by Sugar’s Sweet Stitches

My husband and I went “junkin” today. Well, we actually went to Estates Sales in an upscale neighborhood here in Austin. You never know what you will find when you are browsing around. We found several things, some great canvases to photograph my crochet with, two gorgeous antique clocks that will go on my wall of clocks and a fan.
My greatest treasure though was this hand crochet afghan. I looked at the tag and it was $15.00. I thought great! at 1/2 price it will only cost $7.50 Well, we go to check out and the lady pulls up the tag on the afghan. She said “Thirty dollars, it’s not worth that much. I’ll mark it $20 and you will only pay $10. Even though it was a little more that I thought I grabbed it up at $10.
This beautiful hand-crafted crochet afghan is very old. But the lady was right – it wasn’t worth $30! It was worth so much more.
I’ll never understand why people devalue hand-crocheted items.
