Here are a few things my great grandmother (passed now for almost twenty years) crafted in her hooker years:
My grandma's fall centerpiece sits on a tablecloth crocheted by her mother many years ago.
Zooming in on the details--look at the perfection of those stitches!
Zooming out for just a fraction of the repeats.
I don't even want to think about how long this took to accomplish. For my 'get it done quick' brain, I don't know if I'd be able to tackle something like this. I'm sure my optometrist would love the extra money from treating the eye strain that I'd be sure to have.
And then there's this...
This is the center of a doily. My grandmother has these on the backs of her armchairs in the living room. I'm sure by the fourth one she flew through lickety-split.
And I thought I wouldn't have anything crafty to share this weekend. Thing is--I've got more. I've got a peek at the bowtie quilt my grandma made that I showed you the block for a few weeks ago. And I've got some pictures of what addiction looks like. Later, taters!
