Sheet and pillows

Dear friends, I hope you have had the most enjoyable holiday.

Today I want to show you the borders for sheet and pillows I made for my mother, inspired by an old lace. I used a tiny crochet, 0.75, and a cotton yarn that was from my grandmother - in fact you can see in the pictures some spots - which makes the board more romantic and old.
Hope you like it I wish you a good weekend!
