A cotton reel holder with a pin cushion on lazy Susan, together, on a little storage for some other tools used in clothes mending. Photo # 4 is to compare it with the previous design. ” A Stitch In Time Saves Nine ”
The lazy Susan is 24 cm in diameter.

its a very nice idea and the wood you used is a warm and inviting wood, can you identify the wood you used, it looks like our southern yellow heart pine, i like the design of the pin cushion.

Useful and practical as well as lovely to look at. Sad thing is that so few young people today would give a thought to repairing clothing. They’d give it to Mom to fix or throw it away.

well ken i dont want to turn sams post here into a commentary on the morals of todays generation, but i would say that not only are there young people but also old people who have let the moral of today seep into there daily practices…sad but true…this tool that sam has made is really nice and i would be proud to have this in my home for fabric repair.
