I made some new friends at the op-shop on Saturday. Their names were Chadwick...
Some of them were much too shy to tell me their names, but I invited them all home with me anyway.
Sometimes, it's great being short. If I were further from the ground, my eyes wouldn't have alighted on a rather unpromising looking John Lewis bag and I wouldn't have ventured over to take a peek and discover these treasures. Just over one kilo (I weighed it on my kitchen scales when I got home) of wondrous old thread, all for the embarrassing price of £1.50! A bag of spinach costs more than that! Some of them, like Chadwick up there, are still in their original wrapping, while some spools were nearly empty. The yellow ones up there feel like silk. I'm not sure how I'll use them all yet, but I'm so happy they came home with me.
