My mother's crochet, eight pretty girls and a wedding cake.

I would like to showcase my mother's crocheting.
She monogrammed
 crocheted the edges of these handkerchiefs
as part of the gift box
we gave each of my daughter's bridemaids.
These doileys are mainly crocheted in 60 thread.
Each year Mum exhibits at a lot of the country shows in our district
as well as
the Brisbane RNA Show.
The supper cloth above can be seen
on the
wedding cake table below.
It's a topper size, about 36" square.
Here's the happy couple cutting the cake.
The following crocheted items have all been exhibited
have been very successful.
I love the edges Mum has crocheted around these handkerchiefs.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at
my mother's crochet.
She has been creating quite a stir on
a new group I've joined on Facebook
Doily Addicts Group

  1. Oh those crochet pieces are lovely. What a special bridesmaid's gift! To answer your question, I use a Canon Rebel XSi. It is one of the less expensive SLR's but it does a wonderful job. I've been very pleased with it and if you check out the reviews, I think the consensus is that it's a great little camera for the money. Still an investment for sure, but well worth it if you can swing it.

    Good luck with the hunt,

  2. Your mother does exquisite work! Lovely photos of your beautiful daughter's wedding, also. I really enjoyed your post and photos!

  3. What beautiful work! Your mother must have the patience of a saint. Lovely doilies.


    1. I suppose she is fairly patient, slow to anger etc. She just loves crocheting and can make a complete item in a few days when she is 'in the mood'. Thanks for your kind words, I'll pass them onto her, she'll get a thrill.

  4. Holy Talent! Your Mom's work is incredible!! Thank you for showing. Also, thank you for the visit and sweet comment @TheDedicatedHouse. It means the world. Toodles, Kathryn
