The fact that I do needlework and sew is common knowledge in my office. I often stitch at lunch and have for years. The mother of one of the ladies I work with is "cleaning and getting rid of things" and asked if she knew of someone who would appreciate a sewing box and my name came up. I was given a sewing box that her mother purchased at an antique store, but she believes that the contents had originally belonged to her grandmother. I will let the pictures speak for themselves as I am still totally overwhelmed. The only things I haven't photographed yet are the buttons.
Thank you Alice and Ursula. I am truly blessed by your gift.
