So satisfying to turn this hopeless tangle…
…into this lovely rainbow of usable lengths of embroidery silk.
There were just a few paper bands round some skeins. I know the Anchor brand – but Don Maid is new to me. I think they were a haberdashery firm in the 1950s also producing knitting patterns - does anyone have any more information about this company?
Thank you for all the kind comments. We are taking it easy and resting lots – and very pleased to have Liz and Jon staying with us for the weekend.
