Mom crochets, those doilies and bedspreads (eventually I will get her to crochet a shawl!), but it had been a while since she picked up string and hook. When she saw I was sewing reticules, she asked about them. I showed her pictures of various kinds and she saw the crocheted ones. *Grin*
So, we went through some old doilies she had packed away from 20+ years ago to see what we could do with them and she started to crochet again.
I make the inner liner and we attach them. Here are some we just finished.
