Over the Christmas holiday's, I had ask my new mother in law if she would teach me to crochet doilies. I had never learned to do anything more than a simple crochet stitch with yarn and have always wanted to learn. I bought some thread and a book and have practiced a bit, I turned out a very sad looking piece that I promptly threw away. Today, my MIL came over and brought me a sack of 21 doilies that she has crocheted since Christmas and gave them to me! I was so excited. There are doilies of every shape and size. I have spent the afternoon, starching and ironing them to display all over the house. She worked with me and we started on one. I am just not very good at it. But, I will continue to practice and hopefully be able to make one. In the meantime I have lots of new ones to decorate with. I just love them.
Have a wonderful week and happy decorating!
