Nice and sunny here today and it's a bank holiday which means I will be in the garden in the next few mins. First a quick update on whats on my lace pillow.....
Ongoing, easy project, good for demos :-)
Bobbins on the pillow............
Not my best set of bobbins but interesting enough for anyone who wants to look at them.
I recently acquired a bag of bobbins and a pillow to sell for charity, the more durable ones have been put on one side and I will make up a kit to sell to a new lace maker in the new couple of weeks, some will enter my own collection for use at demos and teaching ( I'm going to treat myself to them using my birthday pennies)
Some of the bobbins were totally dried out, the spangles (wire and beads) fell off as I lifted them out of the bag.
So they are being treated to some Teak oil to try and breath a bit of like back onto them.
Starting to see a difference last night...........and this morning after two applications.
Definitely looking more usable, I suspect I may be shipping for beads later today :-)
Have a great day x
