A couple more items displayed atop my kitchen cabinets are these two containers filled with spools of thread. Most all the spools are wooden and most all the colors were purchased through the years of creating clothing for the three of us. I would venture to say most of the spools are at least 30 years old and some are close to 50, at least. I haven't sewn a garment "from scratch" in 15 years, at least. Every so often, I get onto the ladder and pull down one of the containers because I need a certain color for a bit of mending or a bit of color for an artful creation. Another bit of "wondering why I keep certain things, but, glad I did" thing !!
