Alchemy II

Fluer De Lis

 

Well, I finished the Alchemy project and it was a great experience.  The buyer was an absolute doll and the project was fun to complete.  The pattern is for a filet crochet motto doily and was from a 1918 magazine and was not quite written like we are used to seeing.  For instance, a dc is really a sc and a tr is a dc and so on.  It does not include, “skip 5 dc”, it just gives the directions for the stitches used to complete the row. 

Once I figured that out, it went pretty fast.  It was really a fun project.  Who knows, I may even translate it in to modern crochet terms!
