Some Random Pictures

Today, I have a collection of kind of random pictures.

First up, the Princess Charlotte Bonnet.

When Princess Charlotte wore a bonnet similar to this, home from the Hospital, there was a question in knitting circle as to whether she was wearing it upside down.

My intrepid helper, Bear, offered to help settle this argument. 

As Princess Charlotte wore her bonnet

The bonnet is very cute, no matter how you wear it.

Next pictures: What is it?
I discovered this, in a bag of attachments that came with my 75 year old Singer sewing machine.

It is a small metal object, with a slightly offset point and a tiny hook. I took it to my church quilt group, and one of them knew.

It is a needle threader for the sewing machine needle. I should have guessed that.

Next up: How did I do that?

This is my regular sewing machine needle. I heard one of those metal on metal noises you don't want to hear from your machine, and the point of the needle was stuck in the bag I was sewing, while the shaft was bent at a right angle. I will try not to do that again.


  1. Cute, cute, cute bonnet!! I don't think there's a wrong way to put it on a baby.....or a teddy bear.

  2. How did the needle do such a number? Love the bonnet, the older sewing machines have some impressive attachments, which is not clear when one hold them in your hands and go: what is this? How do one use it?....Need to carry on spring cleaning as I have such a box full of stuff to find, before Retreat!

  3. Hi Kate,
    Beautiful bonnet, any baby would look adorable wearing it. I've never bent a needle that bad, but have bent them. Congrats on winning Heather's contest. Have a great day!

  4. Got to watch when sewing lots of layers. Last needle I had break into several pieces, one striking my face and drawing blood. Made me glad to wear glasses.

    Thanks for linking up with Needlework Tuesday.
