Old needle-case
40/52 for the group 2015 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: M is for Metal

Somehow the weeks slipped away without me getting chance to go out looking for something interesting and metallic, so it ended up being whatever was lying around on my desk.

This assortment of needles was mostly inherited from my mother-in-law, as was the old felt needle-case. Heaven knows how old it is, but I still find it useful.

As you can see, at the moment I'm mostly using the needles with large eyes because I don't sew very often, but I do need to weave in the ends of knitting and crochet projects.

It looks like one my grand mom had

I think a lot of women of that age had something similar. My mother had a similar one, but that has beads on the front and a bit of lace too.

Oh what lovely needles!!! Just think of what stories these needles could tell. Really cool.

I haven't bought needles for decades, due to inheriting all these.

My mother also had a felt needle case, but hers was decorated with beads on the front and I only acquired it last year when we cleared my Dad's house.
