There is a small island off the coast of Venice, Italy named Burano. It is such a lovely, colorful, yet peaceful town at the north end of the lagoon. One calming aspect of Burano is that lace is sewn here. One is captivated and mesmerized by those who are creating lace. The threading process takes time, patience and consistency. My impression is that when you watch the stitches unite, you are drawn into the characteristics of the lace maker. These works of art are expressions created near perfection.
