    My Mother was a master at crochet...it was her passion, as quilting is mine.

    Although she is no longer with us, a little bit of her will be at our Easter table.

    Hope you all have a blessed Easter, and are able to be with the ones you love.

    My mom loved to crochet too. She was constantly doing it until her health failed. Those are some pretty examples to be left behind. Have you picked up the practice? I didn't. I can do some of the stitches but it isn't for me. I would rather embroidery (machine) or quilt.

    So many people have asked me if I crocheted like my Mother. I always answered "No need to, as she is the expert!" I have
    drawers full of her work that I cherish. On the other hand, she did not quilt, and she loved MY work!

    Beautiful. My mom was a crocheter and that's one thing that I never got her to teach me. Now I wish I had.

    They are beautiful. My DH's Mother and GM crocheted as well. Can remember my Mother starching these beautiful pieces to set lamps on...they were big and rufflely (sp?).

    Wow, she was a master of the art! I can do granny squares in cotton with a fairly large hook, but that's it!

    Oh how pretty. My mother was a master crocheter too - I only have just some basic doilies from her but she did all those frilly, ruffled edges that you had to starch so they would stand up. I wonder what happened to them but something makes me think that she probably sold them in a yard sale or something. Oh well - we all have our own memories.
