Some things old & some things new......

First the new.....
Remember the Filet crochet sampler
 I was doing long time back?
I had posted a little peek into it in this post....
I had it finished some time back,
it had been lying in my almirah for some time now.....
At last,
It is now part of a beautiful curtain
which I've put up on the window of my room.
Here is what it looks like....
.

.
Here's a close up of the lace edge...
.


.
And with the insertion....
.


.



.
Now for the old....
oh, what nostalgia!
We've been cleaning up Mom's place
And look what I found....
.


.
Small blanket done in crochet...
.


.
With a set of sweater, booties and mittens
I made even before Vaasu was born.
(the heart motif was my own pattern
and so was that done on the blanket.)
He could wear these till he was 1.
.
Another set also made for Vaasu

 when he was one...
.


.


.
from Knitty .com
This was a pretty difficult pattern to do,
and it took me a fairly long time to make.....
Vaasu almost grew out of it before it was complete!
He wore it only a couple of times I guess!
But ,I love it so... much.
.
It's so nice to find such pretty pretty little things
tucked away in a corner somewhere;
and remember how you made them.....
It wasn't so long ago, yes,
but I was teary eyed all the same......
