Skipping town once again!

Hello all.  I'm going to be leaving for Texas this morning to visit my baby brother, his wife, and my nephew over the holiday weekend.  I promise to put up a tutorial on how to use fused plastic fabric to make tote bags when I get back!  So much traveling this year.  It's been sort of crazy!

So for my farewell post I'm showing you a picture (that is unfortunately flipped from my webcam) of some vintage sewing needle packages that my husband and I inherited from his Great-Aunt.  These were among her sewing notions and I love them.  I hope to display them in my sewing room once I get them framed properly.  I also have some of my own grandmother's sewing supplies.  Thinking about the hands of these women that came before me using the same items I now hold fills me with delight.  Heritage is a beautiful thing.
