This little box has just found its way from an antiques market to my sewing room. No prizes for working out when they were made.
Inside, two brass screws and the full quarter pound of pins, a bit dull, some very slightly rusty, but after almost a hundred years, still seriously sharp enough to make one proud to be British. Not like those cheap and nasty blunt safety pins imported from C---a that a shop fobbed me off with a few months ago.
Free Motion Mavericks will be back on the 28th August.
If you had been intending to link up today or next week, you can take a well earnt rest, or just carry on quilting and show extra posts at the end of the month.
Meanwhile, I shall be having a bit of a holiday.
