Tuesday Treasures

A few weeks ago I joined a potholder swap with Faith at Crochet By The Sea  ( http://crochetbythesea.blogspot.com/).  Sadly I have been most remiss as I have not even started my potholder, as with everything else as of late ... its coming ... its coming ...  I hope to one of these days say its completed.  Anyway, the week before last a package was waiting for me when I got home one evening and what do you suppose was in there ... this darling potholder dress made by Faith.  I cannot begin to express what I felt when I took this from the box.  It is so perfectly made and one of the most beautiful crocheted pieces of work.   It was made with love and I can feel that when I hold this treasure.

Also was this magnet bought on an excursion by Faith and her husband to the Amish Country.  Words cannot not express!

Yes, these are two new treasures and they will certainly be cherished.  These no doubt are go to pieces when days are a little less brighter as they cheer the heart.  But, I have to tell you, the best treasure of all is the heart and soul of the friend I have met at Crochet By The Sea ... Faith.  I have been blessed.


  1. That's such a cute little potholder. :)

  2. What lovely gifts and I know the meaning behind it is priceless...

  3. I love that little crocheted dress. Absolutely adorable. I have a couple a friend gave me, made by her mom. They are hanging on my kitchen cabinets. Hope you are having a terrific Tuesday. Best wishes, Tammy

  4. What a wonderful friend Faith is. She also has a cool blog! :)

    It's been so hot and I have been on the road here and there...trying to post every so often...and knit a few rows each day. Don't give up on me...I will finish that shawl...I am just really slow at knitting, and it's getting heavy holding it on my lap..and wine, wine ,wine... I am so bad aren't I!

    Glad to see you are posting again. And thank you for visting my blog and always leaving such kind and uplifting words.

    Blessings to you and yours always. :)

  5. I know how you feel :)) Faith crochets so beautifully.
    A treasure for sure :)
    Hugs to you Glor..
