Wordless Wednesday

2ed8c61728937817fb713256ff74ac86This glorious item is a card covered in Sewing accessories, supplies and tools, offered in Paris Department Store Etrennes as a plaything for Girls. The idea was to inspire them in  traditional needlework skill- which it certainly would have done if it had been given to me!! c.1900

As ever click the picture to see the original link.

Happy stitching!

  1. it’s an odd assortment of things, isn’t it? knitting needles but no wool. at first I thought there was a crochet hook as well, but on closer inspection it looks more like a button hook

  2. How about a competition to see who can name the most items on the card? There are definitely two or three things there I can’t identify.
