When I saw that one of my favorite bloggers, Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage has started a blog party, I knew I had to join in this week.
I have two favorite things that belonged to my grandmother and are now mine. Hooray!!!
I apologize for the somewhat blurry photos, but the light wasn't the best this morning and I was just too excited to wait.
I love knowing that my grandmother used these in the early part of the last century while handmaking clothes and quilts and darning socks.
The mammy pincushion is tattered and worn, so she mostly sits and watches while I sew. I use my own handmade pincushion for my day to day work. I used the darning egg last winter when I was patching my felted wool slippers. My mom said she remembers my grandmother using it when she patched her socks as a child.
I'm glad my favorite things are joining A Favorite Thing Saturday
