The box has a tiny clasp...
Inside there is a lining of silk on one half, and velvet on the other, in a very rich cerise colour.
There was the gift of a silver thimble, in a pretty daisy design.
There is the tiniest of pin holes in the top. So far I think it was made in Halifax by a Charles Horner, and sold by Constantine and Floyd based in Birmingham and Chester. The design was for Princess May, and the pattern was simply named Daisy. This means such a lot to me for our family history.
I would love to know who were the previous owner/owners of this thimble, and what things they may have made and sewn. The thimble fits perfectly, and I shall treasure it, use it, love it, then pass it on.
A lovely card by www.belleandboo.com
was gratefully received. I love the style and colours!
Here are some pictures of a quilt I made that will be up for sale shortly. Showing hand quilted hearts just for today.
and some hand quilted daisies to keep with todays' theme.
Hope your week is going well, I shall try and catch up with some of my favourite writers, and makers.
