This set of two pretty lace panels for decorative pillows were designed in 1916 by Ethel Herrick Stetson. Spring Crown has spade and scepter motifs in in the center and border. Spring Wreath is smaller, with ﬁligree around the edges.
Seagulls play over this old fashioned ship amid ocean waves in this ﬁlet crochet pattern originally designed as a tray insert in 1927 by Carolyn Waite. Add thread rigging to the masts and banners, and you’ll have a picture ready to frame.
I ﬁrst got addicted to making doilies because I could pick a pattern and just get started with any thread I had on hand. I never had to worry about gauge again or whether the item was the right size. Cool! (Insert wrong buzzer sound here…)
