I’ve been having a sort out. It’s amazing the stuff that accumulates – sometimes I think it multiplies when I’m not looking. I bought some plastic storage containers and started sorting out the small stuff:
Buttons and Ribbons
Short knitting needles
Long knitting needles
I wasn’t kidding you about the teddy bear noses – well, they are mixed in with teddy bear eyes, joints and squeakers:
Some of these goodies belonged to my gran. I did manage to part with some of her cards with thread to darn my stockings with, I’ve not got much call for that these days! I did find this though – it’s tiny but still intricately marked:
It is a bit rusty and looks like a crochet hook, but it is so tiny!
Any idea what it’s for? Crocheting with thread maybe?
I inherited some minute crochet hooks, my Granny used to make very fine lace edges with hers.
I don’t think my skills would match your Granny’s, Brenda! I might have a go with some sewing thread just out of curiosity…
maybe it’s a button hook?
nevermind, I didn’t see the hook end before. ooops!
