At the tri-annual “John Bull Competition”, the theme was “7”. There were many interpretations on display at the exhibition – 7 swans a-swimming, rainbows etc.
Pat, our motivator, chose a TEETOTUM (posh spinner). The numbers were worked using Milanese Lace techniques, great fun manipulating the braids round sharp corners. A very helpful husband constructed the teetotum. It had a collapsible stem to help with packing it for the journey to Stourbridge. He cleverly carved the top part of the stem as a question mark.
It puzzled some viewers as to why every number but 7 had been used. Then on the web recently I came across this clock – interesting comparison.
