...lucy..

My great-grandmother Lucy was a pioneer woman and the Lucy shawl tells a bit about her life. She traveled as a child by covered wagon to the midwest, through grass lands, then on by train through pine trees to Canada. You'll find both grass and pine trees in the center panel of Lucy. The shawl is edged with a "railroad" lace section and trimmed with a "wagon wheel" lace.

Lucy is as perfect with that special dress as she is with a t-shirt and jeans!
