Crocheted and lace items to go.

I have finally got around to sorting out two boxes of linens given to me in recent years.  There wasn't much in them that I wanted to keep for myself, so they have been sitting there until I made time to sort and photograph them. 




The photos I took today are just the lace and crocheted items.  I hope to have time tomorrow to photograph the embroidered linens, mostly doilies, a few hand towels, and other items.  Let me know if you see anything you would like.  I have numbered the pictures for easy reference.

 There is also a very long piece of crocheted edging, obviously meant to be added to a tablecloth at some time in the distant past.  I am very reluctant to cut it into pieces, so if somebody can make use of this in its entirety, I would be very happy for them to have it.  For this photo, I laid it out on the dining room floor to give you an idea of the size.

Love all the doilies. I have bought the thread to make one and I am hoping I will be able to by watching you tube tutorials. Love them. Thanks for sharing.
