Christmas Bobbins Are Here
September 15th, 2011
It is now over three years since we invited Amanda D to paint lace bobbins for Roseground and in that time her work – sometimes quirky, often more formal, but always interesting and stylish – has become a firm favorite with lacemakers around the world. So, for Christmas 2011, we simply asked her to continue the good work – and we think you will like what she has produced.
Our Snowman , a happy character, with traditional carrot nose and warm red scarf , is the ideal shape to decorate the body of the bobbin . And too, this design can be supplied on ebony (centre right) – as an alternative to the universally available lemonwood (centre left) and bone (centre) options – which some will find contrasts well with the snowy scene.
Equally attractive – perhaps to those who prefer a more subtle decoration – are the traditional Christmas Pudding design (far left), complete with sprigs of holly and mistletoe, and the Pine Cones design (far right), featuring cones, a sprig of holly in a snowy setting.
Amanda D bobbins are supplied with a matching spangle which feature a painted bottom bead which, for this Christmas range, adds to the festive feel of these attractive commemoratives.
