Show & Tell Friday...So "Knotty"!

I love a pretty doilie!!! Ok, I love more than just
"a" doilie! I love lots of them....all of them!!!
I have many from my great grandmother, grand
mother and various other places, and to be
honest, I don't know which ones are which
any more!



But whoever made them, they are amazing works
of art!! A mass of loops and knots become something
so cool!





I cannot imagine being able to create something
this intricate!






And I can't think of any prettier background for my
pictures!!





Be sure to stop over at
There Is No Place Like Home
for more treasures!

  1. I used to crochet these all the time in my younger days. I've given them all away too. Now I crochet afghans mostly as I can still see the bigger yarn. :)

    I love the way you put the sparkly star on yours. xxoo

  3. I am learning to crochet doilies right now. It gives me an entirely new respect for the women who fashioned them!

  11. Very pretty indeed.

    I can knit, but I've never learned to crochet. These are so pretty, and how wonderful that you have them from your grandmother. That makes them extra special.

    Have a great Pink Saturday.

  13. They are lovely

    Doilies are always so nostalgic and reminds you of the 'good old times'

    How do you use them (apart as a background)? As a table cloth, bed spread?
