here are the fruits of my labor...
much better, don't you think?
I bought a whole bunch of these vintage bobbins that you asked about on ebay a few years back. Do a search for "vintage bobbins lot" and I think you'll find them too.
And I ordered the glass from a local company I found doing a search for "sheet glass". The glass comes Monday...I can't wait!
I'm going to keep working all weekend and, if all goes well, I'll give you a tour of my fresh studio next week!
