Moth & Roses Vintage Crochet Lace Starts

My Dear Friends S&B

I'm saying this again: I am forever grateful to you and still feeling such great excitement with the unfinished vintage crochet you've gave me...I'm on it literally day and night...hooking away in between daily chores! It's addictive ...I know!

I started the Daffodil design of your great ancestors'...but made a lot of mistakes! Many a days, I find myself doing and undoing it again and again! The problem was I couldn't understand the design nor have I ever done a large lace with corner crochet....

In the end, I came to a conclusion that I had to start learning how to do this project right from the beginning on my own, before I could continue somebody's work.

So, here I I didn't want to have two Daffodil Lace Design... I started the other option of practising on the other vintage design in the same magazine. The Moth and Rose....

At this point of time, I'm confident and I can say that I know how to do this type of laces...I will be posting my progress now and again till it's finished for record purpose...By then, my next obvious project will be to tackle the beautiful Daffodil Design that your Great Grandma started.

All for be continued.

Take care always,



  1. Annie , you have the patience of a saint ! Imagine doing and undoing the stitches ?! But I bet by the time you're done with it , it'll be fantastic ;)

  2. This is going to be very beautiful. My missus was into these things long ago - and there are a whole lot of unfinished pieces stuffed somewhere in the closets.

  3. Hats off to you for your patience and perseverance and good eye sight. I am sure the finished product will be beautiful.

  4. That looks like lots of work...but also looks very pretty! I can't wait to see the finished project.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. Although I do not have the time to reply to everyone of them on a constant basis, but, I do read every comment and appreciate it all.
