I have a reasonable collection of needlebooks, hussifs, pincushions and sewing caddies of one sort and another. In fact all the sewing paraphenalia that you would expect a quilter to have made or acquired in a quarter century of stitching [ not counting a decade of dressmaking before that ] but this battered little piece holds fond memories of a mother who couldn’t sew to save herself but still held onto this treasure from her childhood.
I’m not even sure at what stage it came into my possession. I just seem to have always had it.
Nadie you are NEVER to throw this out!
oh and people? Maz is having a contest and all you have to do is tell her about your collections.
zero degrees again last night
