Easter Lilies

I know you will appreciate these.


Filet crochet pillowshams in a lily pattern made by the Old Flames' maternal grandmother.


The Old Flame's mother had a clean out of the linen cupboard and thought I might like these. She remembers them being on her mother's bed over pink encased pillows.
They are lovely, special pieces which are about to go on the bed. She couldn't have chosen a better gift.

They are really lovely, and they look so fresh and new - they have obviously been handled with care.

Oh wow, they are so delicate. Having them in use is such a lovely way to remember and appreciate the crafting skills of our past. What a wonderful Easter present.

Wow! How lovely. I'm sure your Old Flame's maternal grandmother would be very happy to know they are with someone who appreciates the work that went into them.

Also - thanks for the magazines - they arrived safely last week. I'm planning on making up some of those cute sheep.

Such beauty! I'm not a particular fan of crochet myself, but they are breathtakingly lovely.

My verification word is "sanitter": one who knits for her sanity, perhaps?

Absolutely gorgeous. I can't imagine having the patience to make something so intricate. You're a lucky girl!
