Theatre and more lace

"Last night I had a ‘date’ with my son. He took me to dinner at an Asian restaurant in Melbourne, The Red Spice Road, and then we went to the Regent Theatre to see “Love Never Dies”. That is the sequel to “Phantom of the Opera” and is just as dramatic as the original and the music is also as wonderful and powerful. I thoroughly recommend it and having a nice young man to escort me made it even better.

I also remembered another one of David’s pieces of lace that impressed me. This small handkerchief-sized piece is made with a silk so fine that it is difficult to pick up and the silk in the centre is also so fine that it is transparent and if you breathe too hard when looking at it it will just blow away!

  1. Reminded me of the film "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" when a lace handkerchief floats across the crowded village's town hall square where an execution is to take place & everyone is enraptured by the perfume on the handkerchief.
