Lace Books Gift from Ilys

My friend, Ilys, came across a book sale at one of the local guilds where they were getting rid of books for $1 each.  Knowing my obsession with lace, she picked these ones up for me.

 The Technique of Branscombe Lace by Lillie D. Trivett

 Bobbin Lacemaking by Doris Southhard
 and an autographed copy, no less!
 Carrickmacross Lace by Mary R. Doyle and Wilma Firpo
and last, but not least, An Introduction to Lace by Gabrielle Pond.

I am tickled pink with these books and very thankful to Ilys, but it saddens me that the guild felt they had to pare down their library so much that they got rid of these great reference books.

I can't believe they did that either. Most of these books are already hard to come by. You got a great deal! and you have a fabulous friend!
