About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

Bobbin Lace


The gift for 13th Wedding Anniversary is Lace and as I didn't have any I decided to make my own. I had a kit from 20 odd years ago sitting in the loft so I got it out and had a go. Jo Edkins web page helped me get into it again. After a few practice pieces I got down to making a heart pattern for our anniversary.

Here's the start. Pattern photocopied and pricked. Bobbins wound, pins in and rearing to go....


Half way there (I didn't bother turning the corner as I just wanted a strip to go along a photo)


Finished piece of Lace.


Original wedding photo scrapped in a frame with 2 pieces of lace both made with silk thread.
Gosh we look young there!


Here are some of the beaded spangles I made for my bobbins.
My son bought me some new bobbins for my birthday, you can see them on the cushion above.
