Crocheted Vintage Hotpads

Delicate antique crocheted beauties.  My Mom collected these with my her sister.  The thread is so fine that they used, today most of us are using a thick cotton to make hot pads with, but these have such a wonderful feel to them.  I'm trying to decide how I want to display them, I don't have much wall space in my kitchen at all.

I think I will save the rest for another day, as they have "pink" in them.  These were definitely made by ladies who had more leisure time, they must have taken hours and hours, I know crochet is fast but with these fine threads, it still must have taken a lot of time... hope you enjoyed viewing these, I have such an appreciation for the work and love that was put in these...you can't help but wonder about the ladies who made these, what was their stories.
Blessings, Michelle

I don't know if they had more leisure time or just used it differently. Instead of surfing the net they created beautiful time consuming things. I wonder what I could do if I gave up the net.
