Imagine my surprise, delight, and honor when FedEx brought me a big box containing this!
It's the sewing basket that belonged to my friend Elizabeth's mother, Katie. She made clothes for her daughters when they were little, and she continued to sew, cross-stitch, and create as a grandmother. When Katie passed away last year, Eliz and her sisters gave me the sewing basket she had used all their lives.
The basket holds a smorgasbord of color, with vintage trims, pins, thread, embroidery floss, tools, and a needle booklet just like one my grandmother used to have. It's one of the most wonderful gifts I've ever received.
