For my 12th birthday I was given a wicker sewing basket. I loved it and actually still have it. Back in those days it was a common and appreciated gift. Not so sure these days. Anyway, what reminded me of my old sewing basket was an interview I did about Sew-a-Softie day with Postcards From on Weekend Notes. She begins with a reminiscence about the sewing basket she had as I child and wonders how somewhere along the way she had let go of her love of sewing. To read the interview go HERE.
