I went to visit a dear friend of mine a few weeks ago. She showed me the altar cloth lace she’s currently working on for the Mexico City, Mexico Temple. It’s a variation of a pattern she saw on my pinterest crochet lace page. It’s turning out just beautifully! She’s using size 20 lace thread.
These are my great great grandparents, Charles Fredrick and Celinda Jane Twitchell Olson. Celinda is my grandmother who made lace and helped inspire me to do so also. She lived until she was 103. Her life overlapped mine by one glorious year. My daughter, Anna Celinda, is named for her.
Celinda and Charles were faithful members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and left their posterity a great heritage of lace, and faith.
