Found Objects

Being a long-time seamstress (both home and work), my mother has a basement full of "stuff". She worked in factories, and when the last one closed, she brought home lots of materials they wanted to dispose of. I was going through some of it today and came across a box -I knew this wasn't factory stuff. It was assorted crochet cottons and bits of crocheted laces and started doilies, things I assumed my mom had done. However when I asked her about it, turns out it was my grandmother's. 
This is the pile of crocheted items. The colored pieces are little 3D pansies. Cute!
Above are a variety of crochet and perle cottons. Some are labeled "silkasheen". I especially like the rounded shape of the wooden spools.  It's a little hard to see in the picture, but they all bulge out in the middle.

Maybe some of these goodies will find their way into some of my projects!
