What If? lace experiment continues

This post was to be published around the time of my accident but got forgotten about. Some time ago I blogged about using this thread with my embellisher.

Hi Sue
Is that sari yarn that you're using? The colours are really lovely, they look wonderful on the lace bobbins.

Absolutely fabulous, I love it ! Used to do bobbin lace with my grandma when I was a child, but she used plain white thread, not this fabulous one !
