.my daddy + sewing.

The first Christmas after I was married, I received a very special gift: a sewing box. It is the same sewing box that my mother and grandmothers had - handmade by my daddy. 
I love it. I love that my daddy made it. I love that it connects me to the other women in my family. I love that it makes me feel so grown up. I love keeping a current project in there and pulling it out to work on. 

Do you have a sewing box? What do you keep in yours? I have several notions that I always keep in my box. 
a seam ripper - for those all-too-often mistakes
a marking pen - excellent for tracing embroidery patterns
a ruler - to be exact
needles - well, it is a sewing basket
lotion - just to feel girly
sewing scissors - Gingher, couldn't sew without them
thread scissors - also Gingher
a pincushion and pins - my Christmas present from my mama
a tape measure - my newest addition
isn't he cute? 


  1. Your post brought tears. I actually have that sewing box as well, also made by your Daddy, my big brother. I keep a needlepoint project that I haven't finished in at least 5 years. It is the frog that Grandma made. (she finished hers). Surprisingly, I also have the snail tape measure. (Pottery barn after Christmas sale). I love the years of memories that come with family. Watching children grow up into their own people, but still recognizing the familiar of family in them. SEW glad you are a sewer! Love you, Aunt Juli

  2. For the second, apart from the mentioned formats, you can also also|you can even} play particular games outdoors of the common 1xbet casino specter such as money wheel games. Evolution has its Live Dream Catcher, while Xpro Gaming and BetGames have their Live Wheel of Fortune. The aim of this casino sport of probability is to guess the following successful number.
