Vince keeps bring in things that are mine. I’ve told him . . chances are, since I’ve been here over a year, if I haven’t needed what’s in those boxes by now, I won’t need it but what do you do? You can’t throw out whole boxes . . you have to go through it all. The real problem is that what comes in never goes out . . til we move again. Chad is going to have so much fun .. and say so many bad words when he has to go through all this. No. I’m not sorting through it all just to save him from having to do it. I consider it pay back for raising a rebellious teen.
Vince brought stuff in and as I was going through it, I came across a plastic box that I thought I could use. Inside were needles . . all kinds and sizes of needles. No tapestry needles, which are the only needles I use now though.
There are hand applique needles – lots of them because . . well, you know I did lots of hand applique. No . . I didn’t do any. There are lots of embroidery/crewel needles because I did so much embroidery . . nope, didn’t do that either. There are Roxanne needles in the glass vials with the cute little shell on top.
This package was funny. Coats & Clark size 7 sharps – 20 needles for 57 cents back in the day before everything had bar codes. I don’t even know if Coats & Clark still makes sewing supplies. I found a package of Dritz online – size 7 sharps – 20 needles for $2.09.
There’s so much good stuff in these boxes. I’m sure everything got shuffled around in the move. There are probably still boxes that were never unpacked from when we moved to MO in 2007. I’m fairly confident we will never get it all unpacked.
