My husband's grandmother did amazing needlework. She was born in 1900 and died about 1988. I don't have much of her handiwork, but I treasure this sweet celluloid doll. It's a sewing box, small enough to hold just a few precious items.
The skirt divides to reveal 3 tatting shuttles, two celluloid and one metal.
A bit of tatting started by Grandma. Do any of you tat? It's something I would like to attempt one day.
I wrote this post on Friday and tried posting it, to no avail. So my brilliant words were lost and these are the replacement.
