Christmas Past

Looking through my Christmas tree ornaments there were lots of memories of Christmas decorations I had made in years past. The star was one I made at an evening class, it seemed to take forever but it was OK once it was finished. The bauble was one of my firstbobbin lace pieces, fairly quick to make and used Guterman red and green variagated machine sewing thread which is no longer available. The last one I expect many of you recognise, this is a Christine Springett kit, I have made this a couple of times as it is nice to add to a Christmas Card. But shock horror I couldn't find any tatted ornaments, well it is too late for this year so I will search out a nice snowflake pattern and put it on my to do list for next Christmas.


  1. I love all those but especially the last one. That one woke up brain cell # 3!!!!! Hmmmmmm. Hmmmmm. Hmmmmm!!!!!

  2. These are lovely handmade ornaments. I have never heard of a Christine Springett ornament kit until your blog post. Well, many more happy Christmas ornament making memories to you! :)

  3. Thank you for your nice comments.

    Jane - I can't design so I'm glad I was able to wake up your brain cell #3

    TattingChic - Christine Springett is a bobbin lacemaker and has lots of little books and booklets available on her website.

  4. Lovely work on all of them!

    Merry Christmas!
