Hello everyone.Back from lunch.We went out for Chinese. The other day @JamesHxsatic wrote a post on his wife making her sewing needle sharp.I have a basket full of strawberries pin cushion These are very early and popular during the Victorian era. one of our collectible in our earlier years. We also had a collection on tomato type pin cushion. The strawberries here were filled with sand or emery to keep the needle sharp. this is how they sharpen their needles. It works very well. The photo is mine.This is our collection.

That is a lot of pin cushions. I do not even have one. I hate sewing and always have. When I used to use my mother's sewing machine the bobbin would jump out and spin around the floor. After putting it back and the thread going all over I quit never to go near a sewing machine again. Those sewing machines go crazy near me.
