Occasionally, I find stuff that I forgot that I had. These occasional discoveries are one of the benefits and penalties of serious garage saling.
Completely forgotten, I recently came across this wood acorn which seems to be a thimble-less thimble case. Inside is a spool of coarse thread with a hole drilled in the center which I assume is for a needle or two. After threading on some new thread and adding needles, I am certain I will have the most handsome mending kit in town.
At some level, I am always outfitting for a grand adventure.
