I’m amazed that so many people remember their childhoods in detail. They can tell funny stories about what happened at their fourth birthday party or when they lost their first tooth. I had a great childhood but my memories are just not that keen. Of course, I don’t remember my dreams from last night so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised or concerned!
One thing I do remember it that I used to spend hours playing with sewing cards. I would sew the yarn in and out of the holes and when I was finished, I would pull the yarn out and start sewing again. So when I saw an old box of Little Audrey Harvey-Toon sewing cards at a junk market late last year, I had to have them!
The box is in terrible shape, but still readable. I don’t remember if I actually had a set like this, but they brought back memories just the same. A few of the cards have already been worked and a few of the original lengths of yarn are still in the box.
There are even a few extra cards that are not part of the Little Audrey set. I love the lithography!
Perhaps my love of sewing cards led to my desire to learn how to crochet. I do remember that my grandmother taught me to crochet before I was ten and she insisted that I learn to read the crochet instructions. I did and I still crochet today.
Do you remember sewing cards?
