More Practice

After the last little exercise in bobbin lace I still had thread left over on my bobbins, ( I am still trying to figure out what to do with all these little bits) so I tried another of the samples previously worked. This one included spiders, diamonds, and some rose ground. OK, so the diamonds I can handle, as long as remember the twists on leaving. The spiders didn't take too long to detach from their web, but the rose ground is another story. I think I need to find a pricking that has lots of rose ground so I can really brush out some cobwebs.
This one still has lots of joins in it like the last one, but is a little more respectable to look at & maybe a child would like it as a bookmark. I'll let our feeless lace leader decide if it is good enough to go with the rest. Maybe it will be one to pull out when we have run out. If it inspire some younger person to make lace then that can oly be a good thing.

I still have some of this linen thread left on bobbins, but I am going to use it with some other threads on something a little more creative. So come visiting in a few days time to see what comes to be.
