No I am not starting a project. This is what happens when I can't find what I did wrong. This is a result of retrolacing. I could not find where I made my mistake so I had to undo it all. So since I don't want to waste the thread they are hanging on a hapkin holder that one of my children made in school. The masking tape with the guilty child's name has come off so I don't know which chicklet made it...but it works wonderful to hand my bobbins on and make them behave before they get to work again on another piece of lace. 
   Tomorrow there is no school because it is Martin Luthur King's all of the chicklets will be with me. I think I might either work on either my Bucks Point Edging or my Shamrock Torchon edging. ...I am thinking the torchon one right now.

I just finished painting these large Square Santa Claus bobbins. These are the last I am painting for Christmas which has come and gone. In this picture the bobbins are in the same order but turned four times so you can see each side. All the Santa Clauses (since I hand painted them)  each have their very own personalities. They are all for sale. If anyone one is interested in buying any please send me a message.  When the three are gone they are gone.

I have been painting Santa Claus bobbins. There are three Santa Clauses going around the bobbin. There is also a saying in spiral going around that says. "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" . What would Santa be without the presents for every good boy and girl so there are presents with a few jolly Ho Hos.  These bobbins look very Christmasy which I use my Christmas themed bobbins year around just like I listen to Celtic Christmas music year around. :) The last bobbin with the varnish and bird in cage spangle is at present on ebay. I just listed it. There are only a few others of this bobbin. If you are interested in buying one please let me know. When they are gone they will be gone. These were lots of fun to paint and very vibrate. All the other bobbins in the picture also have their varnish and bird cage spangle ready to go to another home amd make some pretty lace.  Here is the URL for the ebay listing.
