This White Wednesday I thought I would pay tribute to our Grandmother's and Great Grandmother's, probably Great Great Grandmother's too, who made all of the lovely crochet bedspreads, runners doilies, etc.
To think they would sit there for hours in dim light and work with this fine crochet thread and a teeny hook and make beautiful huge bedspreads!
Here are just a few close-ups from my ever growing stash. Some were made by my Grandmother and many were purchased. I tend to hoard these pieces when I see them for sale for fear someone will buy them to cut apart, at least while I'm alive they will remain whole.
Such pretty patterns!
This is my first little flower using vintage size 30 thread and a size 11 hook.
I never in my wildest dreams thought I could crochet with a teeny hook and that fine thread but I LOVE it! I will certainly never make a huge bedspread or a runner but maybe a doily some day!
Right now the flowers are making me happy.
Thank you Faded Charm!
