Pioneer Women's Hut (Part 2)



There were many household items to see. 
 
 Don't you just love covered jugs!
I just love these tea towels.They were made by a Marie Grove. She started a Glory Box when she was about 
ten years old. She kept the tea towels in that box 
and they were never used.
 

The stitching on these was so neat.
 For the laundry.
 
How cute are those pegs!
 Needle cases.
 Lots of embroidery.
 Doily holders.
 Sewing notions.
This spinning wheel was used during World War I to spin wool for making socks and scarves for soldiers.
A needle case.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing just some of the many items at the Pioneer Women's Hut. If you ever get the chance, 
it is well worth the visit.

Thanks for telling me about this post today Christine, otherwise I might have missed it (although I don't miss much on your blog,lol). I'm drooling over the collection there, but not just the items - I have enough of my own (and all of them different to these). I want mine to have a permanent home like these! Where can I find someone to build me a Pioneer Hut in Eltham???

Great look into the Pioneers Womens Hut...when I drove by last year it was too late in the day to go in which was disappointing, must get back up there and take a look...
