My emotion:

Skilled hands intent on embroidering precious details: this image accompanied my childhood, like that of many children here in Sicily.

Under the clear light of the skylight of her house, my grandmother embroidered her precious laces with patience and precision, and I watched her, in admiration, give life to a delicate beauty of shapes and colors. 

Embroidery, in Sicily and beyond, was a hobby for women to cultivate but sometimes also a means to support the family income or to become economically independent.
