As possible will post about this with a little polemic....
By now, here is the Tudor rose mounted i the lid box, the Parrot progress and my new,larger, stitching tools case.
Also an idea for a thread waxer made with a real mother of pearl shell container; I did it when I could not achieve a autentic vintage one, have you seen those lovely ivory carved or mother of pearls one ?? love them, but unlucky in auctions, so this works fine too and is unexpensive.
The shell is one used for making bijoux bought in a little market, just fuse the beeswax in, clean a little and is done !
