The week in review: November 4, through November 8, 2012

This past week was a big one for me: I finished my much desired fat bag, uncovered the facts of a 92-year-old family secret (or solved a 93-year-old family mystery, depending on which family you approach it from), got this vintage crochet pamphlet by Sofia T. LaCroix:

and made this second African Flower hexagon motif in as many days:

I don’t know exactly what crochet the weekend will bring, but I know that there will be sunshine, and I intend to enjoy it!
