A little time and patience….What a transformation.

My Mum’s Old Sewing Box.

This is my Mum’s old sewing box. I just had to share my joy.
On a rainy day, you’ll find me in the sewing room playing and rearranging my stash. So given our recent cold weather, I was rummaging though the shelving a rediscovered this sewing box, looking a little unloved.
A little clean with a mild soap solution and a soft toothbrush, has brought it back to life.

I’m thrilled with the results

When I received it, it’d been on the wardrobe for years and was filthy. I am stunned at the colour of it… It’s amazing what water and an old toothbrush can do… I’m grinning from ear to ear! Any idea of its age? share your thoughts below.
