Separador de bolillos/ Bobbin lifter-spacer

Creo que FINALMENTE luego de varios intentos y modificaciones he logrado conseguir un separador que bolillos que también funge como protector de labor y  ayuda a levantar un poco el hilo de los bolillos para que no se enganche en los alfileres. Lo he probado y resulta muy cómodo. 

I have FINALLY come up with a bobbin lifter/spacer/cover all-in-one thing after several tries. This is a piece of fabric - which covers and protects the work in progress - with large beads sewn in circle - which separates the pairs and lift the threads up and off the lace in progress avoiding snags.
I've tried it and I'm very happy with the results.

    1. Thanks! I came up with it after some trial and error! It's two pieces of fabric sewn together (to avoid snagging threads on the underside) and large beads hand sewn around the opening. The opening is 3 inches in diameter and the beads are sewn 1 inch away from the edge of the opening.
