A Very Special Gift!

I was gifted this tiny antique Chinese sewing basket. I believe it is over 100 years old and I ponder its history…wondering how many have loved and used it, what sort of garments were mended by hand with the needles and thread it contained, how many hands have passed it from one generation to the next, how many miles across continents from it’s origin with stops along the way in different countries did it travel until it landed among the gifts underneath our Xmas tree. If this basket could talk, what tales it could tell! I will use and care for it lovingly until the day I pass it along for another to enjoy. It measures a petite 6” across and 2” in height and it came with an assortment of wonderful old buttons that I can use in bead embroidered works!
