Okay, call me crazy!
I got a particular idea in my head
and I just had to go with it.
Drop everything else - no
matter how long anything else had
been waiting for finishing touches.
I wanted to see if this would work.
The reel/spool still needs its nails of course.
It only measures 2 1/2 inches in
height but I was determined to
try this out. I know it is
impossible to get perfect detail
of the willow pattern - it is only a
suggestion of the pattern.
If you hold it away far enough
it looks good (to me)!
The reel/spool was turned on
a rough example of wood and
because of that, the surface is
not very smooth no matter how much
sanding you do.

What do you think?

Next time, I will be continuing with
"Bobbin Along - Part Two".

Thanks! I MUST be to think of doing these extremely fiddly details on tiny spool knitters. But I have always done things like that, haven't I? I really don't know why I am drawn to it.

I love it! My mom used to have all the china with that sort of pattern on them. I think they got sold in a move somewhere along the way.

Thankyou so much, Nadine!

Thanks Nathalie! .... if I find a larger cotton spool, I might try it again!
