This close up of my Mum's bobbins, it shows you the lovely crystal and glass 'spangles'.
These are used to give the bobbins a little weight. You can also see the wooden clips used to keep the bobbins organised in smaller groups.
The bobbins are very slender. My Dad turned some of these bobbins. He says for every successful one, he probably breaks ten.
This shows the progress Mum had made on her project.
