A little time and patience….What a transformation.

A little time and patience….What a transformation….. before and after shots of my Mum’s sewing box….. I am so happy ! …..attic finds!

I rediscovered this sewing box in my stash today and started by cleaning a small section, before I knew it the whole thing had been scrubbed – once I started I couldn’t stop! It transformed before my eyes. It was so dirty, but water and a soft toothbrush …..and patience did the trick.

A Little TLC Goes a Long Way

I can’t remember it being this clean. When I was a kid, it was brought out when necessary repairs demanded its presence and then put away to hide it from me and my many siblings…. I love it and will give it pride of place in my sewing room. The fact it was my mum’s means a great deal. I have another sewing box I will share with you soon that has another story to tell.
