Old Spools

Old spools of thread are so attractive to me. The colors, the shapes, the stories that follow them like the scent of of an old attic. Who chose this color and for what? A party, a child, a doll's dress, a graduation? Home sewing is fading to distant memories, mostly of the older women fixing a button or a hem without notice so deep was their muscle memory. Oil on panel, 6"x6", $600
