My World of Needlework


I am almost finished with E-Week 2018

and I've moved on to work on photographing my needlework tools for delivery this December 6.


As finish the  photos I will post some of my favorites here.

Above is the map of how far Queendom Website has traveled,

nice for MacSoph and me, but doubly nice because it shows that needlework is indeed alive and well right round the world.

A Paper-Covered Sewing Case


Doesn't this remind you of a French fashion plate of the 1880's or thereabouts? The photo of a pretty lady and plaid paper, with an applied border of gold paper trim.


Inside is a mirror in the lid and 5 little silver-and-gold-colored tools: needle case, thimble, scissors, bodkin and stiletto. These are not grand tools but rather light-weight and tinny when you hold them.


A modest little sewing case but with a great deal of charm. French, about 140 years old .

A Gold Thimble in a Leather Case


If you look carefully at the band of the thimble, you will see women sewing together.


I have no idea if the thimble and the case began life together, but that is how they came to me and I've always kept them together. The case is indeed a good protection for the thimble.


So far I have given away most of my thimble cases but not my thimbles. So even though the highlight is the thimble and not its case, DH and I have put the two in 'Thimble Cases' and they will leave me together, just the way they came to me.
