The Inherited Sewing Basket
There is actually quite a lot of furniture in this room, some of which offers really good storage; from the practicalities of the plan chest, to the chrome locker, to a white – reasonably new – cabinet (or should that be side-board? quite an old-fashioned name). Hidden in here is an eclectic mix of ‘stuff’ – including my inherited sewing basket; I have decided to show this item purely because you were asking questions regarding its appearance in a previous post. So here is my quite unlovely sewing basket, inherited from D’s mother after she died, because none of his three sisters wanted it. As you can see, it is not quite as orderly as yours!! But despite the tattered, unstuck braiding, and the broken handle, the contents were what attracted me most. A little bit of family history in a box.
A - I wasn't sure whether or not I should be waiting for the crochet (blue) part of your post - so apologies for slipping this in...P
