Doily love

I’ve recently inherited my granny’s handmade doilies and beautiful lacework, some pieces graciously faded and discoloured, some crisp and white. She had a delicate hand and apparently her mother (my great-granny) was even more skilled at this craft. I even have my granny’s pattern books and her crochet hooks… hmmm, perhaps it’s a relaxing pursuit I should explore to counteract the stresses of life..

or perhaps I’ll just look at these soothing doily inspired images instead:
