Silent Sunday July 8, 2018 Related 10 responses to “Silent Sunday” Those spools are almost as old as I am. Have my mother’s spools of thread and have almost used them all. I love my old wooden spools…they have stories, but being before my time, unknown to me…would love to know who first bought them and where and for what project. Some came from mom and some from grandmothers. My mom was born in 1922 and her mom had her at age 30. Gee whiz, these spools could be more than 100 years old. They just sat quietly waiting to be used from way before mankind went to the moon or fought several wars. I won’t try to use their thread, will pass to the granddaughters who are into sewing. One especially loves history and is currently sightseeing in Wash. DC. Bless her dad for taking my grands to as many places as he can. He has also done me the honor of saying the quilt I made for him is his most prized possession. Makes it all worth while, huh? !! Ok, where is my tissue box? Love your story! Oh….. thank you, m’am! Love it! Creative and fun. And yes, a collection of thread on wooden spools (or empty) is a must to honor all previous stitches before us! Dance of the spools! yes! Very clever! I have some old spools like those. They remind me of my mother when she was working at her White Rotary model 77. I still have that machine; it’s the one I learned on back in the 1950s. It still works fine and I run it now and then to keep it from seizing up. Lovely sweet memories. (Sigh!) I have a collection of old wooden spools also…How long can I watch your stacking spools? Fun to watch! Comments are closed.
