100 details for 100 days Day 13

Day13
Day 13 of 100 details in 100 days is a way I embellish lace.

I simply pick out a small detail and line with seed beads. I like the change in texture between the glass beads and the lace.

This particular lace is trimmed with a small bobbles which I held down with a detached chain stitch worked in metallic thread.

Teapots and coptic textiles

For the last decade we have been trying to replace the broken lid of a teapot which is my absolute favourite. Jerry finally, after a long quest found it in Berlin. I love this teapot for it is a real teapot by that I mean it’s the shape you think of when you say the word teapot. Take a look at what I mean.

For the last couple of days I have been meaning to point out that Jerry has been talking about his latest trip to London, Paris and Berlin.

To keep this post textile related there is some images and information on some interesting Byzantine coptic textiles from Egypt in the 4th century AD.
