#bpsewvember Day 15 – Heirloom. My great-grandmother was a seamstress but apart from a length of butter coloured cotton and some reels of threads I don’t have anything that belonged to her. Instead I’m sharing this – an antique German tobacco tin filled with copper embroidery stencils. I picked them up in a market in Bremen last year for about €3 and they still have the original blue marking dye on the stencils! Watch out for a blog post!
