make do and mend

A very battered old home made needle book.

I have admired boro textiles for some time but only recently discovered that not only did the Japanese save every little scrap of fabric they could but that fabrics were also unraveled or picked apart for the thread.  Everything was precious and reused until it fell into dust. It's so unlike our buy it cheap, chuck it out world. 

I find things like this little needle book very touching
