One for the crafters...
What fun I had rummaging through this haul! Such a treasure trove of gorgeous old craft bits and bobs, there's more that I haven't included in photos. Heaps of old embroidery thread, cottons(incl. wood spools), ric rac, bias binding, knitting/crochet/embroidery needles and pinking shears. I love all the old packaging. Check out the needle case, darning thread (for stockings) and fastenings, in the bottom photo. They were all stashed in old tins and a cute old biscuit box. It was all given to me by my mother in law, who received them while helping a friend move her 95 year old mother into a rest home. I hope she knows they've gone to a VERY grateful and happy recipient!
