In culling through my possessions in preparation for my recent move, I came across some of Mom's doilies, and I marveled again at her skill and patience in her hobby. It heightened my awareness of crocheted work that I've recently seen for sale in thrift shops and antique stores.
I've taken one of my photos and have played with different textures and combinations in the editing process. I took one image and converted it to black and white, and then converted it to a negative image. I like the patterning and the overlapping that occurred.
Mom was an old-fashioned kind of gal, but I think she would have liked it.
