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.
