Irish Lace Doily From Umbria, Italy

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
Do you want to see my favorite gift from Christmas this year?

Yes, it is a lace doily … but not just any lace doily. This is an Irish lace doily that my sister-in-law brought back from her trip to Umbria, Italy!

Do you remember my post back in February where I shared the gorgeous pictures from her trip and her visit to the Museo del Merletto (The Lace Museum)? If not, click here to see the pictures. And if you look very closely you can see my doily on the chair!

    My grandmother made doilies like that. She came Salina, in the Aeolian Islands off Sicily. I am trying to work out where she might have learnt these patterns, since I think this kind of work is only found in the Umbria area?
