Once upon a time, I made amazing pieces of lace, they were a frippery, a lovely indulgence, a glorious bit of fun, and, often time, challenging, demanding, a test of endurance. In the end, they would be tucked away and rarely if ever worn. This amazing Hidcote had a spectacular photo op at Bryce Canyon, but then it languished, waiting, tucked in a cupboard. It was when my sister said she would like a shawl to wear at her wedding the idea of giving it a new life struck me.
I feel as if there was a reason I made this shawl in 2007, a reason that came to light in 2015. My sister needed a hug of support and love during one the most important moments of her life and I am very happy I could be there for her in every way.
