>display at lace in


I didn’t take many photos at the Lace-in like I wanted to.

I did get a few of the display of different types of lace. There where a few things people were working on that I could have taken photos of. Sorry to say their items didn’t interest me enough. People did more talking than working so I wasn’t able to get as many photos as I would have liked. But these are kind of neat, so I hope you enjoy them.This is a display Dale sets up for events like this of all different types of lace with an emphasis on tatting. Which only makes sense as that is what he specializes in. There are also netting, tape work, needle lace, tenneriffe and a few others. Very lovely collection of items. I think he made about half of these .

>A bit of lace anyone


Today is the “Mad Tatters” Lace-in aka Dale Pomeroy.

I am going to try and get some photos there so I can post a lace post later. The Christmas ornament you see here is one of his creations and is also a link to his site check it out. I was given verbal permission from Dale to use the picture of the ornament on November 11, 2006, in person.

>drawn thread work table cloth

>I was a bad girl. Saturday night I was taking some stuff to the local thrift store as a donation.

Then, I decided I just had to go in for a quick look (I always look for vintage crochet thread, old embroidered pillow cases, and things like that).

When I found this drawn thread work table cloth, I figured it had to have tons of holes or why would any one chuck it? Upon inspection, I discovered it had one tiny one and I didn’t see damage to the embroidery.

Then I figured it has to be expensive; but I saw the $2.00 price tag. Oh, that was so going to be mine! It always amazes me how some people just don’t think much of hand work, and others would pay hundreds of dollars for this same item on eBay.
You never know. Well, this hasn’t decided where it is living in my house yet. It still needs a cleaning (even thought it looks real clean). Then I will decide. No matter where it goes, it will be lovely.

This little cloth is the size of a card table type of cloth; just a lovely little size. It is amazing how much work was put into this one little cloth; a true family heirloom that someone tossed. As the saying goes, “One woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure.” OK, I changed — it artistic license. But you get my meaning all the same.
