On Saturday, The Director and Miss Eagle attended the Open Day of The Embroiderers' Guild at Malvern. There is a slide show below of the beautiful things. But beautiful as all those things are, the most interesting was the Clematis tin. The Director drew my attention to it. It was sitting on the floor. The Director said: "Look at that! How many Australian women have kept their sewing things in a Mac Robertson's Clematis tin." Indeed. Our mother had done just that and how it brought back memories. Out came the camera and down I got on hands and knees to photograph it. A woman came along asking if she could help me and wondering what I was doing. I explained to her. It was her tin. She told me that she had found the tin among the things of her great-aunt who used it for her sewing things. The romance of the Clematis tin.
Do others in the blogosphere have a story about the Clematis tin?
