Some of the lace is cheap and ugly
(see the sea-green lace in the lower left-hand corner).
Some of the lace is 6 inches wide polyester
that was used to drape pews at someone's wedding.
Some of the lace, however, is hand made.
Some of it is tatted:
Some of it is crocheted:
Some of it I remember having in my Mom's stash when I was in Junior High School in the 1970's. This butterfly lace I used to embellish a cami (we called them undershirts). I sliced down the front, sewed lace on both sides and laced it up with a ribbon - the way you would lace your shoes.
And a remnant bag of rick rack.
I had a turquoise floor length dress/smock with a full front yoke.
On the yoke, we sewed a rainbow of rickrack.
Yes, this box is full of memories.
