Treasure Chest Thursday-Time Capsule-Sewing Anyone?

Sewing was a very common way to pass the time (and often a necessity) in the late 19th and early 20th century.  My great grandmother Frances Lowe was no exception.  Here I present, from her Time Capsule of treasured belongings, her hand sewn pincushion.

Here are links to the other posts in this series as well as a couple of related articles:
