Yes, I made a mistake in my last blog, and it was in the heading so that everyone could see it. As I told some friends back in the summer, I don't get paid to do this anymore. Anything I write, type, or edit is mine, and I'm the one responsible. Spell check can only do so much for me.
The incorrect use of the word "lace" made me actually think of what comes to mind when I hear that word. There are lace tablecloths and curtains, lace trim on beautifully smocked dresses for little girls, Battenberg lace, and Belgium lace. These are all nice, but that's not what I think of. Two things come to my mind. The first is the dainty tatting that my grandmother did. Tatting makes lovely lace trim on ladies' handkerchiefs. (Does anyone carry one these days?) I have her tatting shuttle and even some leftover thread. I bought some supposedly easy-to-follow instructions, but so far have not taken up tatting. The second kind of lace is the kind my mother crocheted. I have several sets of pillowcases with different patterns of lace she made and sewed on the pillowcases. Of course, those pillowcases have to be ironed or steamed pressed, but I do love to see them on a guest bed.
I'm sorry I made the mistake by using the word "lace" for the word "place," but it did conjure up some wonderful memories for me. I hope it did for you also.
