Celtic's Lacing and Whimsical Thoughts
This is a blog for those that love all kinds of lace wether it is tatting, bobbinlace, needle lace or any kind of lace. It is also for those that love Irish and Uk things such as history, music, customs and art.

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 Day...so 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.
