What’s in a name? Well, you could ask Shakespeare what the blazes he was banging on about, or you could ask Emma Lamb. She makes the awesomest modern-vintage (work that one out) crocheted garlands and goodies – and names them all. Wouldn’t you like to take home a Daisy or an Esme? Or a Flora or an Edna? I don’t know how they smell, but they sure are sweet.
Being International Women’s Day today it seems quite appropriate that the Mesdames will be taking lessons in one of the more feminine arts of crocheting from the lovely Ashley at tonight’s Cotton Club. Here’s hoping that we can (eventually) be making things as lovely as these fine examples from Dottie Angel.
An obsession with vintage doilies has seen Jean Lee from Ladies & Gentlemen put her crochet skills to good use. These full size area rugs are hand knotted with cotton rope using vintage doily patterns. We like it when people think big.
