Treasure chest

A gift from a friend - his mother's sewing chest. It stands about 50cm tall, and in its five drawers are a collection of patterns, implements, and - buttons from the past 50 years or so. I'm not ready to explore it yet - it feels very personal. Also it raises uncomfortable thoughts ... one day my own son will have a similar task; I hope to have whittled my sewing gear down to such a containable amount!

Well now your son has even more stuff of yours to pass on after you do!
