And Now For Something More Pleasant

Recently my sister and I were going through some old crocheted doilies my grandmother's had made. This one was one I had not seen but I feel in love with it immediately. The color is so different almost like orange sherbert. It was probably crocheted in the 50's. I have been photographing as many as I can to have a record. Both my grandmothers, one grandfather and several aunts crocheted many many doilies. I also have a crocheted tablecloth that I used for my wedding, a crocheted bedspread and decorative pieces. When I think of the amount of work that goes into even one of these pieces I know I will never be able to keep up with the legacy they have left me.
