Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!

Well it’s another Friday the 13th and I choose to believe it’s good luck, not bad. I did a little research and found out black cats are actually thought to be good luck in some countries. If that’s true, and I think it is, I have plenty of good luck around the house.

Black Kitties on the Porch

This is two of them on the porch. One checking out what I’m doing and his brother lounging.

 

I had a grey momma cat give birth to four boy kittens in our barn almost a year ago. All are a combination of black and white. At first, they wouldn’t let us near, but now it’s a different story. They’re still outside cats, but when it gets cold or rainy, they are more than happy to be inside. All are fixed, that was fun, catching them and taking them to the vet, but it’s important. The county shelter is full enough already.

 

 

 

 

 

That brings me to today’s freebie pattern. A filet crochet baby blanket for the crib made up of animal blocks, one of them being a cat.

This pattern came from an American Thread Company booklet called Star Bedspreads Book No. 34 published in 1944.

The name of the bedspread is Land of Nod

“Whimsical…elfin…and so simple to make, a block of filet crochet and then a block of fabric. Little tots will adore it”.

 

 

There is a duck, lion, bird, elephant, squirrel, rooster, reindeer, pig, rabbit, dog and cat, and birds.

Because it is made with blocks, you could make it as big or small as you’d like. You could use all of the animal patterns or just a few.

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

Lilac’s were and still are one of my favorite flowers. I saw them everywhere when I was young and lived in upstate New York. They have a beautiful fragrance and color.

So when I saw this Lilac Time filet crochet pattern for a table cloth, I had to share it. It’s actually for a Tea cloth 49 inches square and the pattern suggests using a very fine fabric.
