    When I cleaning my sewing cabinet the other day, I came across
    a "jewel" of my grandmothers-a pkg. of quilting needles for 25 cents and there were 25 needles in the pkg. I bet they would still do some quilting today.

    For all you ladies out there who would like a box like this. I'm almost certain this is an old machinist's toolbox that Grandfather adapted for Grandmother's sewing chest. You can still buy these boxes on Ebay and other places, though, I warn you, they are expensive. They are reproducing these boxes but they, too, are expensive. Plan to pay $100 or more for one. I want one--had one many years ago that my husband relined for my jewelry collection. Sadly, it was disposed of many years ago. I am so happy for you to have such a wonderful treasure!

    Wonderful, so glad that someone appreciated it enough to keep it and that you can show place it in your home.

    That is a beautiful storage box! I just LOVE things like that! In fact, I LOOK for old things to store my treasures in..... I probabaly have too many now, but when my permanent sewing room gets done, I will have lots of cool things to use.
    Its even neater knowing the history, and that its your history too!

    What a blessing that is for you to have, hold and cherish. Things like that only go to remind us that those we love are still with us in memories of cherished times. I am sure your daughter will cherish it as much as you do.
