Granny's flower crochet needs new leaves

Last week, when we went to visit a recent friend, aside from the unfinished vintage crochet lace I inherited... I also became a recipient of a 40+ year old child's bed crocheted cover!




It's beautiful! I can understand the value of crochet workmanship and to think of the many hours it took to finish this!!






Unfortunately, some of the green leaves surrounding the flowers got worn out....but it's something that I could H A P P I L Y  fix!





Another "can't wait" to get my hands on to.... I start fidgeting with great excitement just thinking about it!! but... I have to contain myself...after all, I'm still working on something else...yes, my daisy white flower crochet with red background...it's coming along good...so far, got 81 flowers done...with 300 more to go?? who knows...! :)

Hopefully I could post and show you the finished work soon...

  1. Oh? Can repair? I thought once it's spoilt, it is good for using as rags for wiping the floor or something already?
