Red and Blue

A quick snap of some work in progress this week...


... lots of red poppies which will become brooches and headbands.

I love those blue Dorcas pin tins. I've got two of them, this one was a hand-me-down from my mother and the other (which is the same design, just larger) was my grandmother's. Very special things.

Those tins are real heirlooms, I've kept my mothers as well.

my mum had one of those tins - I bet she still does. Must snaffle it the next time I visit!

Oh, those tins are precious (especially for their sentimental value to you)!

Family things are the best! I have several bits of sewing equipment that belonged to my grandmother, plus my other grandmother's old thimble and sewing box, they are all so very special especially as I spend so much of my life doing sewing-related things.
