Sew Beautiful!

I found these needles in the sewing stuff Grandma G gave me years ago. I love the vibrant colors and detailed illustrations they used on their packaging. I have to wonder, on closer inspection, what all of these women are looking at. With the exception of the lady looking at the needle, the rest seem to be staring off in the distance at something just out of sight ... judging by their smiles, it must have been something worth looking at!

I love the looks on these precious kittens faces. The one on the right seems to be very nervous, perhaps because the other one is going to steal her thread.

What precious finds--I love the old sewing notions--they were so whimsical in their presentations. Especially packaging for needles!

I was thinking maybe they were looking at someone who just entered the room. They all seem to be quite distracted, and the way they're smiling...well, it's either chocolage cake or a man. (hahahaa)
