Tiny Baskets

I found these two 5″ squares of filet crochet lace at my grandmothers. I do not think my grandmother made these. She liked to read more than do needlework. They are made with size 100 thread and a fine gauge hook. The pattern is simple and rather charming It is hard to describe in words how light and delicate they are to hold.

  1. They look absolutely precious! What a fabulous find! Are you going to frame them or put them on a pillow??? I look forward to seeing what you end up doing with them.
