I am aware that these photographs were taken and processed rather quickly as I am a bit short for time.
Patricia over at Daniella Joe’s blog was interested in pineapple patterns so I thought I would share the ones I have. They were obviously very popular in the past.
These are from two books that were my mother’s.
A motif to be used for either a bedcover (left) ot tablecloth (right)and another similar one for the same two purposes.And one just for a tablecloth.Finally, some table mats: thisand this.The first of these last two designs was used by my mother for a cloth on the dining table on which sat the wooden fruit bowl.
A bit worse for wear now. I think she may have intended to make another before she died. It is made in #40 crochet cotton.I had originally intended to make this for my table till I decided a larger one would be better.
