Last summer my husband and I took our daughter to visit his family in Sweden. It was the first of many trips she'll ever take there. During our visit my husband's grandmother ask me if I wanted to look through her stash of lace and fabric that she had been holding onto but didn't think she'd ever get around to using. Among the items that she had been saving was handmade lace. I can't tell you how old this lace is but I can say that it is beautiful and delicate and special. This is why it makes me nervous to actually use it! However, it just seemed like the perfect little embellishment for this little dress...so I did!
