Day 182 : Bobbin .
I have to say I am happy with this! It is, after all, a pretty good definition of a thread button!
The thread is a filament silk that I hand dyed many, many years ago. The purple colour was an accident - I seem to recall it was cochineal, but the pot was just an old pot - you should know what the pot is made of for a proper recipe. Of course, that meant my attempt at a good medieval colour was out the window, but the purple made me very happy.
