A Happy Monday to you all. This weeks "old threads" makes me happy. Last week I was tidying up my sewing room and re-arranging a few things when I re-discovered two boxes of old cottons that were passed onto me. Wouldn't it be lovely if we could buy threads in boxes like this now.
Inside were 5 full reels of Barbours' Irish flax linen thread. Number 50 with 200 yards of thread on each reel.
The other box was a Rowntree's Milk Whipped Cream Brazils box,so not so old but with a wonderful collection of thread. There are some wooden reels of Semco rayon crochet cotton No.24 which has 100 yards of cotton. I would be interested to know if anyone has any idea what the round thing to the far right of the box is.It has a few measurements on the side. Plus the words "The Perfect Tenerife" plus a patient number. These treasures will be put back in the cupboard in the sewing room to be brought out every now and again to be admired.
I hope everyone has a perfect Monday. We are having lovely Autumn weather here today so hopefully will get out into the garden.
