This collection of embroidery silks comprises my grandmother's leftovers, my mother's and mine. Grandma died when I was 11, so we're talking decades of hoarding.
I've done no sewing or embroidery since I needed glasses to thread a needle. Been there; done that; not likely to do it again ... and, even if I sat with a busy needle and thread for the rest of my natural, I doubt I'd ever use these up.
They are a sight for sore eyes, though, aren't they!
