My friend, Mark Patterson, took this photo in a shop window in Venice, Italy, in early October, 2013. He agreed to let me share it here. I assume it’s tatted. I love the delicacy of it and the beautiful butterfly design. It’s also so nice to have a friend think of you when traveling. It’s a really lovely piece..
This doily was created by Linda Law’s grandmother, Gladys Nunemaker. She’s unsure if she did the embroidery in the middle, but knows she made the tatted lace. The embroidery looks hand done as well, so I’m guessing she did it all. It’s a really beautiful piece – so very delicate. I love it when people share these family pieces and stories with me. Perfectly lovely! Thank you, Linda, for the photos and the story. Thank you, Gladys, for creating such beauty in the world.
