Old, but new!

I have something that is old, but new.

See the doiley? My great-grandmother made it - no telling how many of those things she made but until recently I only had one (framed, hanging in my living room) My aunt sent this one several months ago. It came the week the girlfriends were here for the quilt festival but it had several places that needed repair. I don't crochet. I would have used it as is, but Sarah's mother crochets and she likes to repair old pieces like this, so Sarah took it to her to fix. I picked it up when I was in J'ville last week.

So, now it is 'new' to me! Don't you love it when you don't notice that something isn't straight until after you upload the picture? I haven't pressed it - couldn't wait to get it on the table and take a picture!

Hope you are having a wonderful week!

Oh my. You know how much I love old doilies and you have one from your grandmother!!! How very, very special and someone who can repair it for you to boot!! Wow! Isn't it amazing how you notice things through a photo that you don't see with the naked eye?
