Lacy, Lace, Lace....

When I was last at my sister-in-law's house, she showed me a beautiful dress she had made for a baby doll. I asked her if she could use some lace and she said, "Sure!" I have a box of lace that was given to me but it has been sitting around for a few years now and someone may as well get some use out of it. So when I got home, I started searching for it. You guessed it, it's in that black and white file box in back of everything.
But that's okay; turns out the big green bin had hardly anything in it and everything was quickly moved out of the way. Once I opened the box, all of the lace was a tangled mass,
so I went out to the kitchen to get my box of ziploc snack bags and sat down to sort through everything.
If it was about a yard or more, I coiled it up and bagged it. Some of it was really pretty, something that's a little harder to find now.
I set aside the ones I use for dollhouse curtains which were only short pieces anyway and then searched for a bag to put it all in. All ready to go!
On a side note, we found a few things that were left behind when my daughter and son-in-law and their 7 children visited. One thing we just could not find though was Asher's orange water bottle. We searched the house and the yard, the shop and even dug through the bushes in the front with no luck. Bill went to get the white buckets out of the shed to use and guess what he found between the 2 buckets....Ta da!
So that was mailed off to Wyoming along with the other things we found and we are anxiously awaiting to hear if they can move here near us. Please be in prayer for that and have a great day!
