Lace Bookmark

It's been months since I've done much bobbin lace.  A couple of weeks ago I got a simple Torchon bookmark started and today I finished it off. 

We'll meet again the end of August - perhaps I'll get another bookmark started before then, although I have rather a lot of items on my to-do list. 

For today I decided to take a day 'off' from weaving. The two prototype samples are ready to go into the washing machine and I'll press them tomorrow.  Looks like I probably won't get any weaving done on Monday or Tuesday as both days are loaded up with commitments. 

Today instead of weaving I've been spinning more of the roving from my stash I'd forgotten I had.  Plus I found a bunch of singles I had spun up a few years ago.  I think I'll wind those skeins onto spools and ply them.  Once those are plied I'll have a pretty good selection of skeins to offer for sale in September.  And hopefully some of it will go to new homes and be gone from my stash?

Yes, "gone from the stash" is always a good thing. I'm hoping the friendly folks in Bellevue will want to relieve me of a good chunk of inventory.

Can't wait for the reveal of the prototypes.
