Crochet Quote: Doris on doilies

Today’s crochet quote comes from Doris Chan. It is originally from Crochet Lace Innovations but I found it in a series of doily love quotes published in the Summer 2011 issue of Interweave Crochet. The section also included great quotes by Margaret Hubert, Dora Ohrenstein, Kathy Merrick and Robyn Chachula – check it out if you can get your hands on an issue.

Doris Chan says:

“The great doilies are stories in crochet, with a beginning, character development, and plot twists, periods of conflict, growth, and redemption. And the best of them have slam-bang endings.”
