Doily


Despite a long walk from the main road to a colony that took about 20 minutes in the heat of the summer afternoon, I didn't find anything to photograph. At the end of the long walk was friend V, who is passionate about crafts. We got talking and she was explaining what it takes to make doilies and took me up to her room to show me what a blocking board was. This is one of the doilies in her stash.

  3. My grandma used to crochet and I remember she had some very lovely designs for table clothes and sofa backs. I think my aunt has most of those now. But Nandita is right. It does take a lot of patience.
