Sew: A Needle Pulling Thread...

 Happy Monday and Happy National Thread the Needle Day!

Let's celebrate the tools of our trade today!

Ahhh...the days when needlebooks were given away for FREE to advertise stores and products!

The books that celebrated not only sewing but passing on the tradition to the next generation:

Can't forget our furry friends:

My personal favorite is that gal that many of us grew up with...Sewing Susan!

Of course we can't forget our thread:

Whatever you're doing today, enjoy threading your needle!

Have a happy and safe a day!
