My new favourite tool....

Over the years since a friend gave me this little tool I have not actually used it much.   But, tonight it has been my new buddy:-)
My friend's husband was very keen on wood turning and he made these beautiful little wooden handles poked a tapestry needle into it (eye portion in the wood) and they are the most fantastic 'unpicking assistants'.   Yes!   I have been reverse stitching tonight so I am off to do the dinner dishes and hope to recover my stitching momentum during that break.   Wish me luck.   This is the base of the thimblepod.
