Lace is a very close cousin to knit and as I was thinking about my next post I found a very beautiful picture of a Victorian lady in a beautiful irish lace top (image number one) and as ever, it led me onto other equally beautiful Victorian lace..

and if you happen to be in Ireland you might want to visit the Kenmare lace heritage centre
I also know that you might be thinking, hey what about Nottingham lace? more on this subject soon...
