365-272 Thread

I love these wooden spools of thread.  They are the remnants of my mom's sewing days.  Seeing them in "my" sewing box makes me happy.  The whole box was my mom's, which she gave to me many years ago.  There are other spools of thread, on foam and plastic, and old zippers* and notions in there, but these are my favorites, so they got their picture taken today.

*I need to learn how to sew in zippers.

Great shot! My mom has quite the collection of those too. I love her button collection... I should take a picture of it.

Beautiful spools, and thread colours! I named my blog after my mother's spool box. The spools can mean such happy memories.

I like old wooden spools. Our local sewing store closed Christmas Eve :(

Very cool. We seem to be on the same page of late. I've posted thread and sewing machine parts. :-)
