May CupboardScape

Gosh Geez Goodness.
Here it is almost the end of the month
and I completely forgot to do my 
May CupboardScape.

Since May is the month of Mother's
I wanted to feature sewing related items
to commemorate both my gramma B and mom's
love for sewing.
Gramma B actually was a seamstress.
My mom taught me how to sew.

The framed piece in the back is a real
pattern for making this dress from 1891.

It is framed under glass,
and the pattern pieces are printed on heavy paper not tissue.
The detail on each pattern piece is just amazing!

This piece is off an industrial sewing machine.
It is the bobbin holder.

It holds three bobbins.
One on each side and one on the top.
(top one shown in previous picture)

This Stillwell sewing machine was my gramma B's. 

See my wooden hoops in the background...
and of course one of my many jars of buttons.

Bob and I went on a buying trip this week.
We got back last evening.
The only one we will be able to do for many months,
as his surgery is this Wednesday.

We were able to score many many items for both our store
and of course myself as well.
We worked 4 1/2 hours last night and another 3 hours this morning
getting everything re-arranged in the store.
Since Bob will be out of commission for many months,
we wanted to re-do every space we have in the store.
I will show pics in a future post.

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.
It is actually nice today and love having the windows opened.

May CupboardScape Blessings To All!
