Daisy Lace is a short story of a great grandmother, Elspeth Douglas, a woman of the mountain country who posesses one great talent; she is a lace maker able to make such beautiful things that she is famous throughout the hollow. Now ninety years old, she decides to use the last bit of strength, the last bit of ability she still has in her ancient hands, to craft a lace gift for her great granddaughter Daisy; something the little girl can keep for the rest of her life. At the same time, Daisy is using her own talents to create something special for Great Grandmother Elspeth. Here is an excerpt:
"Give me, God, the time to complete it; the days, so precious now, of life; the days, so precious now, of loving.

And she looped the lace and she wove the lace,
And she made an open laced web of love.
And her memories melted into each space,
Breathing her own life next to every curl in that lace."

Daisy Lace is six pages in length, illustrated with copies of antique photographs from my large collection; the faces of the people in those photographs become the faces of my characters. The book is 8 and a half by 11, enclosed in plastic page protectors, and held together by vintage lace. It is embellished with a gold tone charm of a clock, symbolizing the old woman's longing for the time to finish making her gift.
