Thank you everyone for the complements on these pieces. I enjoy having some handwork to do in the evenings while DH is watching TV and the kids are doing their crafts. I like to keep busy and I'm usually too tired to quilt on the machine in the evenings - I make too many mistakes quilting when I'm tired. It's much easier to crochet.
I have been searching the internet for vintage patterns - ones that remind me of the pieces of crochet lace and doilies that I have of my 2 grandmothers. The pattern for the doily mat and the Pineapple Lace Doily came from Free Vintage Crochet. I've also printed patterns from Craftbits and I'll post photos of the pieces I've made from those in a few days.
