4th of July post card

These are hand printed cards made by me on an antique printing press with antique lead and wood type.  I printed these July 4th 2011 and they got miss placed in a move.  I have since found them and wanted to make them available for others to enjoy.

They are 6 1/2 by 9 inches
lithograph  ink and printed by  hand which means each has a little different feel to it in the amount of ink on the print they are all hand signed and dated.

They are currently available in my etsy shop

i won't be making these again once they are gone there will be no more made.

Romanian point lace cord sizes

Since posting cords to my shop people have asked what is the differnece between the cord sizes I figured easiest way to explain is a visual.

Not pictured I have made size 50 and 100 but oh my goodness I don't have that patience anymore or that eyesight heaven bless those that do as it is a sad day when good vision starts to go.

(pink and white) Size 30 size I have used for baby bonnets to make it more dainty.

Size 15 not pictured ( because I don't have any made at the moment) I don't use often but do every now and again becuse I own some thread that size

Size 20 ( cream ) and 10 whitish) I use the most for cord ( I usually fill with size 30 thread).

Size 3 ( cream ) and 5 ( ocher) I use for making bracelets and such .  I have used size 3 on a bodice of a child's dress to make it more sturdy.
