Designed by Australian Mary Card in 1918 as part of a series of doilies and panels honoring Allies from the Great War. This doily combines the French national emblem, the Fleur-de-lis, with a lovely verse: “Life is mostly froth and bubble Two things stand like stone
This set of seven charming animal and insect insertions—a happy dog, busy bees, a butterﬂy, a mother duck and duckling swimming along, an owl, a pony, and a pair of playful cats—were designed by Ethel Herrick Stetson in 1912.
Roses, butterﬂies and winding leaves decorate this summery ﬁlet crochet lace edging. Designed in 1927 by Olive F. Ashcroft, it can be used as a border for a tablecloth or a dresser scarf. Make the narrow leaf border as long as you need, or omit it for a faster project.
