Celebration Bobkin

This is another one of the projects we received at the Make It, Take It at Celebration. The first picture is with the Bobkins safely stored under the ribbon in their new holder and the second is the back of the holder with the bobkins out - so you can see what they are. :)

This stitched very quickly in about 2 hours on Sunday afternoon - just didn't get around to uploading the photos til now. This was my first attempt at Nun's stitch, so an easy quick finish to learn a new stitch! :)

I'm pretty close to having my Mira RR all ready to go too - just a bit more stitching on my section to go - hope to have a pic to post of that soon.

Your Bodkin holder is gorgeous. Sounds like you had a fabulous time at Celebrations, wish I lived closer LOL. Congratulations on the house, it looks wonderful.

Very cool!

That is just too cool. I use that type of bodkin sometimes for Swedish weaving.
Looking forward to seeing a photo of your Mira. I'm still working on the border but loving it. I can hardly wait for this RR to start

Very cute!

I have quite a collection of bodkins (I collect decorative ones); I might have to borrow your idea, and stitch a holder for them!

I had to look up what "bobkin" was and didn't find anything. THEN I read again, and did a search for BODKIN! Duh. Great job, Jenn!
