Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands.
Psalm 90:17

Remember when I mentioned finding "treasure bags" of sewing notions at the thrift store? Here is one of the cool things in the last batch-- a crown shaped pincushion! The fabric is a gold velvet; trimmed with a metallic gold braid. The metal base contains a retractable tape measure and there is a clip on the top that holds a thimble as the crowning 'jewel'. All the pins and needles on it came on it---- as well as the dust!

Then there's this... needle? Awl? I don't recognize this tool. It's about 3 inches long, one half is smooth with a sharp point at one end while the other end is rough, like a file of some sort. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi Mickey! Ummm I don't know what the needle is for. And that's astonishing because I use some pretty unusual needles!

I love the pincushion...is it antique do you think?

Thanks for dropping by and leaving the great comment.
