Mundillo (Lace Making)
I am from Moca, Puerto Rico. When the Spanish came to Puerto Rico they brought Lace Making with them, in spanish it's called "Mundillo". I remember as a young girl how my grandmother would make lace. She also did beautiful embroidery. At that time I didn't ask her how to do it, but now I want to learn how. My sister recently went to Puerto Rico in February. She went to the Museum of Mundillo "Lace Making" in our hometown Moca. She bought a Mundillo for me. I was so excited when I received it. She also bought an instructional manual all in spanish. Oh my, I can almost vision my grandmother busy twisting the sticks, which is what I used to say. Here is a nice pic. I promised my sister the first thing I make it will be for her. This is an incentive for me. A promise is a promise. I can't wait to get started.
