no new art work but...

a glimpse of my new collection of old wooden cotton reels!

I think I could re-use them, I have embroidery cottons I could wind onto them!

And amongst this collection is a card of fine thread
for mending stockings and "all kinds of hosiery"

And what about this! A card of fine Irish Flax Fishing Line!
"Not a kink in a mile - not a fish lost in a season!"

More distractions!

ooooo Carole, your wooden spools make me drool (sorry ;) such a beautiful slice from the past, they certainly do not make them like that anymore! I adore vintage sewing bits!

I love your photos of old sewing supplies. Makes me want to get the few things that I have out and enjoy them. Thanks for sharing, I always enjoy visiting your blog.
