My friend Jan gave me this mending kit with handmade pouch. She found when she was going through her mother's sewing box. I have no idea how old they are however I'm pretty sure her mom made the little pouch.
I finished this Sisters and Best Friends pattern this morning. I had started it in 2003 with Gloriana thread. I pulled out the little I had done and started over with the threads listed on the pattern. It went very quickly, I really enjoyed the beading. It is from the "old stash" and I've already started something new.
