Today we have been wrestling with the solar system and dealing with flooding from all the rain, so finding a little package in my mailbox from France was a totally delightful surprise. A very sweet and thoughtful gift from Francine who just had a birthday on the 14th. Drop by and wish her a belated Happy Birthday.
She says the doily is made by an old woman in a Cypriot mountain village. It looks tatted, but apparently it was made using just a thread and needle. Very interesting and beautiful. I do have quite a collection of handmade doilies and lace that I go through and fondle every so often - I love them but my "decor" is a little too rustic for displaying them. One day I will figure out a project to suitably show off this lovely lace.
