While cleaning out the attic last Saturday I found many of my crochet books and patterns that I thought I had lost. I have a few vintage patterns. Some were from my mother and some I purchased years ago. This booklet, below, cost 10 cents and the copyright is 1953.
A few years ago I crocheted these doilies. I also found them in the attic along with some table clothes and placemats. Periodically I would search around the house for them. I was upset that I couldn’t find them. I thought that I had either given them away or threw them out in one of my
psychotic episodes cleaning frenzies. I was so happy to find out that I still had them.
One reason that I stopped using doilies is because after washing them they need to be blocked. As you can see in the bottom one it won’t lay flat unless it is blocked. Nonetheless, I thought they were kind of pretty and unique at that time when I made them.
Well, that was a boring post. I am just happy that I took some pictures so that I could make a post. I think I have posted four day in a row. That is a record for me.
