When I mentioned to my Dad that I was starting to sew, he said that he had something he thought I’d like. I saw him last night and he gave me my Granny’s sewing box! It’s a little wooden chest of drawers and is full of things like threads in all sorts of colours, zips, elastic, bias binding and bits of ribbon. It’s an absolute treasure trove and I feel very honoured to have it.
I don’t think it was originally a sewing box because here’s a pic of the label on the back:
And here are a couple pics of the contents (courtesy of my husband who was unimpressed at my attempts at taking artistic photos and so took them himself!)
