Tea towel edging - See the beginnings of a ruffle?
I've recently taken up crochet. I am every bit a beginner but my attachment to this art is growing. In fact, I've become a little obsessive with edgings. I made this pillowcase for my friend, Cindy. Note the requisite edging? Perhaps she'll use it at the quilt retreat later this month.
