Four Generations



Four generations of needlework washed and drying. This is a small part of the collection. My mother had hundreds of doilies that she and her mother had made over the years. When I married, she gave me a small collection as keepsakes. She kept the kitchen towels that I made for her. My oldest daughter and I have since added to the collection. I plan on displaying the doilies in my china cabinets. They should look pretty and be safe there. Don't you think?

I still use the embroidered dresser clothes that I made, but my pineapple ruffled doilies are a bit too fancy for a house with 6 dogs and 2 cats. Maybe I'll starch them up and show them off this Christmas.
