We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Bobbin Gobblin'

For those who know me, my passions are vast and many. Making bobbin lace is one. It was actually incidental that I got started on it. If you recall, my tatting teacher's teacher, Mrs Sheila Dutton, was visiting one year and the group did bobbin lace. It looked challenging but I made a plunge to pick up a few techniques. The pieces I made weren't much to show, but you might want to see the bobbins I gathered subsequently.

Sheila sewed the bobbin cases, and they are beautiful! They can't be left empty; oh, absolutely not. The enthusiasm to purchase a few bobbins got the better of me, and... Well, the rest is history.

Thought you might enjoy some eye candy.


  1. I haven't touched my bobbin lace in two or three years. Perhaps if I had pretty pouches like yours, I might be tempted to set up a work area and give it a go again! ;-)

  2. Gorgeous- and so appealing. I love "neat", tidy and orderly- lets my chaotic thoughts whirl!


Thanks for visiting! Do leave a comment as I'd love to hear from you.
