It's Still Christmas In My House

This comes out every year for Christmas. It's one of several Christmas-colored doilies that one of my grandmothers crocheted back in the 1960s or 1970s. I have a whole boxful of assorted doilies that she made. Some of you may remember my blog post a couple of years ago about a quilt I made using a few of them.

That is a beautiful doily! I also have a few that my grandmother made and I have them in use. Proudly on display.

I have seen alot of quilts where dollies have been used and I have even brought used ones from yard sales .I too hate to cut into them but some wer used so much ,there are holes in them ,so I will be cutting into those .Love your red and green one !

It is lovely! I find that the old crocheted doilies are so beautiful.

and why should it not still be Christmas? We haven't got to Epiphany yet, have we. I'm with you Anya, I love to make it last as long as possible because it is a beautiful time when people have happy, nice thoughts for each other. My grandmas were also very clever at making things and they taught me too, which I am very proud about. Long may these crafts live on.
The doilies are just so gorgeous and each one tells a story about the life of the person who made it.
Show them with pride for as long as you can.
Blessings, Star
