Artistically arranged by loving hands and an imaginative spirit pieces of lace lie sorted and awaiting tags for an upcoming show.
Each one a reflection of its creator the light, delicate threads are as fine as a spider's web.
Some were cherished for years, tucked away to stir a memory or hidden beneath one's outer garments.
Others were utilitarian, woven for bedding, toweling and household use. Often initialed by the maker they were stacked in wardrobes, cupboards and dressers.
Each one a wonderment of their construction soon to be treasured by someone else.
