One of our members came to our last patchwork meeting with some tea towels she had been given. They are hand painted and then the ends have been decorated with crochet. They are now for all us to use.
I had a teen-aged student who's parents came from Portugal, where these came from. She used to complain that all they did was crochet. Everything was covered in crocheted and she called her mother and aunts the "Crochet Marfia".
They are intense but colourful.
