Hello all my dear stitching friends!
Hope you all had a
We ended up going to Gold Rush yesterday,
and didn't get home until late...sorry I
didn't have time to do a post :(
I'll share the "goodies" I found on
my sewing safari yesterday.
|~ Sweet doily, velvet pincushion, acorn thread holder & silk apple ~|
I'll start with the sweet little doily
it cost only $3.50.
|~ Cute size that you don't find often ~|
I especially love the sweet ribbons
that are attached to the ends!
|~ It's in pretty good condition for its age ~|
I have wonderful childhood memories of
my grandma on my (dad's side), crocheting
every spare moment she could find.
|~ Wonderful wood thread holder ~|
Oh boy, did I get excited when my eyes came upon
this awesome treasure!
|~ Lovely detailed top finale ~|
These early thread holders with ivory accents
are really rare and hard to find.
Very well preserved and
in excellent condition with NO cracks or chips!
|~ These were meant to hang from your wrist ~|
Originally, this would have had some type of ribbon or cord
attached to the top, so you could wear it on your
wrist while crocheting.
|~ I've added a pretty silk ribbon to the top ~|
Also, I added a ball of Valdani hand dyed punchneedle
thread to the inside & fed it through the hole.
|~ Would make a great punchneedle companion ~|
I may use this while working on a special punchneedle
project, what a great way to keep the thread
from falling on the floor...our ancestors
were so clever!
|~ Woven Sewing Basket Stand ~|
I have a weakness for pretty sewing stands, this one
is in pretty good condition, except the handle is
attached with yarn.

This one even has a bunch of old sewing stuff in it, but I
haven't had a chance to look through the
|~ New Rabbit friends for Mother's Day ~|
Samuel bought me two wonderful concrete rabbits for
Mother's Day. They are the ones on the left & right.
There's no doubt, Sam knows what his mom loves!
