After you "Ohhh and Ahhh" my beautiful golden doodle grand-dog and appreciate my quilting- daughter's newest finish...a Winter Tree Quilt, check out her early birthday present...a gorgeous antique Sewing Table made in 1880! She is just thrilled with it...
Erin said inside the table there are sewing notions from the 1880...so fun and different...like this pincushion and thread holder, hand carved out of ivory!
Does anyone know what these are?
There were three of these spools in the table. Erin said they are very small...and well worn...Does anyone 'out there in blogland' know what these are or what they are used for?
I love a good mystery...and I love old 'quilty' things! Makes me wonder who owned this table before Erin....was she a quilter too? Did she love to sew, crochet, embroider or knit?..Of course, I'm leaning strongly to her being a quilter...
Erin is thrilled with her table, as she should be! It is gorgeous!...She is hoping to put all of her hand-work threads and needles in this table, as later this month she is taking a Needle Turn Applique Workshop from Caroline Freidlander! How lucky is she!! She has also joined a 'Stitch and B****' group...meeting once a month in their homes, to enjoy some quilty talk and some hand stitching...just like they did in the 1880s! Yup...somethings NEVER change! Well.. maybe the name....:o)
Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Stitching!~P
