Wildlife Snuggery Crochet Hanging Basket

Meet Leilani a Possum in the care of Kinjarling Marsupial Rescue.  When this Snuggery was hung in her enclosure Leilani was quick to snuggle up in it and that is how these crochet hanging baskets came to be called a "Snuggery".

Pillow Lace Cushions

Before I could make my own bobbin lace kit I had to decide what type of pillow lace cushion I wanted.

There are quite a few styles of lace making pillows and I had no idea what the differences were, but what was obvious to me was that some were flat and some were cylinders for making long braids and laces. A few 'bobbin lace cushion' searches later and I thought I needed a pretty antique* roller cushion style set-up, and I wasn't swayed by how pretty they were at all.


Well, yeah Ok, maybe the prettiness did sway me just a little.

Both of these lovelies I found on Pinterest. The little draw for keeping spare pins, bobbins and lace patterns, the care gone into decorating the wood, I just love that they are beautiful as well a functional.

So I set about making one.

*Modern roller pillows are a cross between a flat pillow and cylinder pillow offering you the best of both but the antique ones are more cylinder and don't offer as much flat working space.
