Treen - Darning and Mending Mushrooms and Eggs

Treen - I opened the small oak drawer in my desk and discovered more eggs and mushrooms than I had remembered. A good surprise. Some of the handled mushrooms pull apart, the small wooden egg opens and has a hollow for storing darning needles. Some of the mushrooms have clips for holding the sock or object being repaired in place. I collect these under two categories; sewing and treen. Treen is my main collectible category and tomorrow's blog will be about butter molds.

Wikipedia on Darning and ehow on Darning and a Wikinut explanation with links to two videos demonstrating darning socks.
