"Katarina pulled a chair towards a high shelf and climbed up to get a wooden box. It seemed almost as big as she was, but she managed to slide it off the shelf and pass it down to Kyria Moreno, who put it in the center of the table.
Katarina ran her hand over the lid, enjoying the patina of smoothness, and traced with her finger the delicate image of the pomegranate, which had been inlaid into its surface. The box was oval, lined with pale pink silk, and the lid itself was padded. The interior space was divided into tidy compartments, within which were spools of white cotton for lace, lengths of fine gauze edging, skeins of silk in pastel colors, tiny spools smaller than a little finger, and, in the padding of the lid itself, needles ranged in size order."
Happy weekend to all the silk and thread and needle and wooden box and pomegranate lovers! :-)
