'The invention of a Goddess and the occupation of a Queen'
'Lace is as much about the space between the threads themselves'
'A grandmother's love is like beautiful lace .... a precious gift of time and love'
'I consider lace to be one of the prettiest imitations ever made of the fantasy of nature, lace always evokes for me those incomparable designs which the branches and leaves of trees embroider across the sky, and I do not think that any invention of the human spirit could have a more graceful or precise origin'
CoCo Chanel - April 29th, 1939
'Whatever improves the lace and makes it more beautiful is right'
'It is difficult to see why lace should be so expensive, it is mostly holes'
Mary Wilson Little
.......... to which an English costumier responded ..........
'Yes, but have you any idea how hard it is to get those holes to stick together ?'
.......... and, finally,
Lace makers do it on pillows and usually in pairs !!!!
HA HA !!!!
Have a great week everyone.
