A gracious bequest

A courageous friend of mine has taken a position teaching English in Chile.
I admire her personal strength & spirit in making such a huge change in her life when most of her peers are beginning retirement.
I had the good fortune to spend some time with her today & she has given me some of the most beautful laces & linens as she is unable to take them with her.
Look & enjoy...

A bodice...

whitework on a guest towel...

a supper cloth...

such delicate beauty!

Thankyou Kathleen for your generosity....you have entrusted these treasures to me & I will value them!
