Wooden cotton reels! We used to hammer wee nails into the top and use them for French knitting!

Great collection of old sewing notions.

I love the Shamrock wall hanging. Simple, yet so adorable.

I love the treasures you have collected. I can't show them to Dear Honey or he will start looking for all of them. Got to Love him!

And we used to make little tractors out of wooden cotton reels. We would cut notches into the edge and with a rubber band, a nail and a piece of candle we would wind them up and have races on the dining table! What a great memory boost! (We also did French knitting with them and make great big long snakes which never got made into very much.)

I am with the french knitting & the tractors from the wooden cotton reels! Perhaps is was a New Zealand thing?
I loved seeing your pics, & it reminded me I have my Mum's old Sylko threads, also some an Aunt recently gave me.
Lovely Shamrock.

DH was asking me recently if I had any wooden cotton reels. Get real! He wants to make cotton reel "tanks" for DD. Remember those?
