Pink Thread

I was speaking to a friend about sewing and said how much I loved the old wooden thread reels compared to the modern ones.

Next time I saw her she presented me with these two lovely reels of pink thread that she had in her sewing box.  The colours are very pretty.

The paper bag she gave me them in is very unusual.  It would appear to be a Dutch street scene - she thought perhaps Amsterdam.

Just thought I'd share it with you.

Enjoy your weekend.

Love, Liz

Yes, there is something very pleasing about wooden cotton reels. Might have to start a collection..... Have a wonderful weekend.

Ah - a collection. Yes I, agree the wooden reels are far superior. What an unusual bag. It would look good framed.
Love from Mum

I am going to have a hunt in my sewing box, (and my mum's) to see if I have any wooden cotton reels lurking about!
