Victorian sewing

Today hubster took me to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) downtown Toronto. It’s been awhile since we were there last, about 10 years. Sadly the textiles area was closed but I did find a lovely Victorian sewing kit, wish I could’ve taken it home.

And although this piece has nothing to do with stitching, I really love the design of this ancient asian piece.

A note to the locals: dim sum in Markham is WAY better than anything you can get on Spadina, it’s like night and day!

Have a great long weekend, welcome Spring!!

  1. I love the look and feel of vintage sewing tools. My imagination runs wild thinking about the person that used them and what treasures she might have made! And while the Asian piece isn’t sewing related it too makes me wonder about the hand of the maker. I can visualize this piece reinterpreted as a wall hanging! Really lovely images!!
