Sandie from Crochet Cabana inspired me to search more for the crocheted bedspread I fell in love with when I saw it in FDR's bed this past Tuesday. I love the power of Google! ... with just a few key words Google found exactly what I was looking for!
Now, I'm not sure if this person who took the picture had permission or not, but you can see it here ... www.flickr.com/photos/wallyg/520730704/
On the right is a close-up (as clear as I could find) of the motif. The little "bumps" are popcorn stitches made up of the tiniest of crochet stitches! Can you see why I was thinking "snowflakes?" ... I could have said flowers too. It's stunning to see in person! (Hopefully no guys in black suits and dark sunglasses will be knocking on my front door for posting this!)
Now ... finding the pattern (or one very similar) will be a whole 'nuther chapter to this story!
My goal is to one day recreate the motif, perhaps for a scarf, a handbag, or even for a garment. Still, though, it would be lovely to know who hand-created those beautiful stitches! Wouldn't you love to know too?
