Starching and Stretching


Sheila contacted me last week and asked if I would block her mother's last set of crocheted doilies. Susan's health is quickly failing, so I gladly accepted and spent about an hour with Susan learning her blocking tricks.

Susan has laminated circles for blocking the doilies, which I brought home with me. I began the process on Saturday.

Readers may remember that I purchased some of Susan's gorgeous doilies and posted about them here.
