Handpainted Bobbins and Spools with Silk Ribbons (2)

The colors of these handpainted bobbins and spools remind me of Paris. They were inspired by ones made by Heather Bailey. I love all sorts of tools associated with the fiberarts and collect them with relish. In my studio I have a stash of old wooden spools I've gathered over the years. Sadly, they are a disappearing commodity in the marketplace.

This week the Etsybloggers' blog carnival topic is the latest item purchased from an Etsy shop. Mine is a lovely collage of images of the City of Light--Paris--compiled by the incomparable Lunagirl. What fun I will have with these!

  1. Lovely photos! I don't see very many wooden spools about anymore, either. I miss them.


  2. Thanks, Stella! Your marbled papers are gorgeous!
