Mystery solved?

Thank you all so much for all of your wonderful comments on the sewing notions that my mother passed along to me.  They were all so nice!

Mystery tool

Consensus on the mystery tool, in the photo above, seems to be that it’s either a turning point or a finger press. Based on the fact that it has a point, but not a sharp one, and that the rectangle on the end is shaped in a way that seems like you should hold it there, I’m leaning towards the turning point. Though perhaps it was meant for many purposes! Anyhow, I’m happy to have it, along with all of the other wonderful tools.

Meanwhile, one more finished Square in Squares Baby Boy quilt! This one is already accounted for and being mailed off today!

Only two more to finish up and then I’m not going to make this pattern for awhile. I’ve had my fill!

These little guys sure are cute though.

Hope that you have lovely weekends filled with sewing! I’ve not been able to be in the sewing room much this week with my mother’s visit so I’m excited to get back at it. Oh and by the way yes, she did love her quilt!

    This is such a cute quilt! I really like all the cute fabrics you are showcasing in the center. Those owls are adorable!

    It’s hard to pack it all away isn’t it?!? I was never one to be able to keep producing the same thing. I think that’s why I got so burnt out on making baby slings.

    It’s lovely though and so are the pillows. Good for you!

    Really adorable!!! I know what you say about getting burned out on these though. I’m sure if you do something else for a while and come back to them, you’ll have a whole new outlook. I missed your pillows in an earlier post — they are fabulous too. Like all your work. :)

    Is it possible that the above pointy-thing is a primitive spool? I have some more decorative antique spools that I use to hold custom-made bias tape, and they are very similar. Sorry I am unable to post any pictures of them!
