That is way too coool! Unfortunately when my grandfather got sick they had a sale and I was unable to attend and have little of my grandmother's work but memories of sitting and watching her work. She would let me try after she showed me what to do. I love those mental photos and charish the memories they conjure.

That is just wonderful. I wish we could see it in person. I may make one for myself. seems more easy to fine items than a regular sewing basket like I have.thanks so much for sharing. Mary

what a great treasure and keepsake. I'm so glad you finally get to display it. It would be a shame not to see this on a regular basis.
