These are antique cotton reels that my grandmother used. I never really knew her as she died when I was 1, so it was a thrill to find these in mum's sewing cabinet.
My holiday is now almost over - it's been a busy few weeks- Christmas, New Year, Canberra, learning to sew, spending time with family and friends. It's been great! The last few days I plan to catch up with a few more people, sleep in and finish unpacking.
