what if bobbin lace experiment

Hi, I'm confined to the house at the moment with a chest infection. If I move, I cough, if I talk . I cough so I'm waiting , not too patiently for the antibiotics to take effect. However I'm not good at sitting still and not doing something with my fingers.

So I doodled this

i used to make a lot of bobbin lace (30 years ago) but very traditional!! yours is fantastic!

Weird said...

Wow, I love this! I like seeing old techniques put to modern use (or giving the things a modern look - I don't really know how to express exactly what I mean). I always enjoy seeing what your creativity makes you do :-)

Thanks for commenting on my first bobbin lace piece. I've been following your blog for a while and your 'what if experimental piece' inspired me to do a little experimenting myself even though I'm just a beginner. I just love what you did.
