9th February 2017 - Heartathon



Some years ago now, Hawthorn kindly gave me a large quantity of lace making bobbins that had belonged to her mother-in-law.  I shared them with my daughter-in-law who loved them as much as I did and I even had two old sherry glasses that seemed very suitable to hold them. When going round the house looking for hearts I suddenly remembered that there were a pair of glass hearts on these bobbins.

  1. The 'weights' for a better word on the lace bobbins have always fascinated me especially the vintage ones

  2. Very nice. Love the bobbins and the glass. Have you ever tried lace making? It always looks complicated when you see people demonstrating it. See you tomorrow & take care.

  3. I do agree that lace bobbins are beautiful. I've never tried to make lace and know it is not something I will ever try!

  4. I'd not realised there were some little glass hearts at the end of the weights. I have discovered over the years that there are hearts all around me that I'd not seen and this heartathon makes me look for them :)
