My Treasure today is my Husband's Grandmothers Sewing Basket. Whenever we visited them at their little retirement cottage at Bribie Island she could be found in her favourite chair embroidering or crocheting around a recently completed piece. When we got engaged she worked about 20 pieces for us and even though they weren't fashionable back then in the 1970's I loved and treasured them amidst much nose turning upwards from my friends.
I still have nearly all of our '20' and I treasure them all. I have 2 favourites one I can't find (if you saw my linen cupboard you would know why. Sshhh!) which is an old fashioned car with a romancing couple taking a spin and the other is the bluebird centrepiece.
I also am amazed at how the threads of stitchers connect us through the generations.
For other Treasures today visit the wonderful blog of MELODY from "The house on he side of the hill"
Lastly but certainly not least I wanted to show you my ever bulging Christmas tote (Santa Sack) from my Swap partner Tarnyia in CHERYLL'S Secret Santa Sack swap. Soon the squishing and poking can stop and the fun of opening can begin******
