Don't you love old thread? And the spools? I do. I inherited a bunch of sewing stuff from my grandmother when she passed away in the early 90s. The threads are one of the favorite things from her sewing boxes. But my favoritest thing is the collection of buttons I have from her. I will share those with you another time.

I'm leaving tonight for my trip to Upstate New York (see yesterday's post). Cleaned out my (and my two daughters!!) workspace yesterday so when I come back it will be more inviting. The leaves are starting to fall here in NYC even though it's still very hot and muggy. Being an Upstate girl (lots of cold and snow), I actually like winter or at least I know how to deal with winter. So I love the change of seasons and look forward to some crisp air.

I do love the old spools.

If I sewed at all, I would have a little bowl full of them just for decoration in my "sewing room"...

I also inherited a ton of old spools from various female relatives and pick them up whenever I find them...the threads may be faded and sometimes they break, but the colors are so "real" that I will almost always try to use them before I put a new spool in my hand.
