As I'm packing I came across these.  My Gramma made the round one but I did the others.  About 20 years ago..  Not sure you can see it but the left one has a Rose design & the right teddy bears.

Cute! The only thing I like to crochet is thread, so that means doilies and my kitchen valance. And then I got brain dead and made some small black doilies for my bathroom. Nice job, Patti!

I think the best part of packing is finding the special items and reconnecting with the memories. I cannot pack my photos albums without going through each one first.

Filet crochet is beautiful. Patti, you are a woman of many talents.

I like to frame old doilies and use them as artwork. Nice job!

Patti, you've got one up on me. I have tons of doily patterns, but i've only tried Filet Crochet once and that was on a road trip when the boys were small. I couldn't keep track of the count and pay attention to the boys and the pattern at the same time, so I gave up and never tried again.

I think I'm one of the dinosaurs that still uses doilies! I have them all over my house! They go with the Antiques!

I use some myself but not as many as when I first got married.  I enjoy doing it but just can't see the threads now.  Would anyone like 4 balls of pink thread?
