Our Friend, the Stiletto

I would never sew in stilettos. However, I would sew WITH a stiletto. I didn’t know that they moonlight as a sewing tool until Christmas time, when a friend from quilt guild made these adorable things for everyone in the guild:

They are really useful for holding down little pieces of fabric in spots where my fat fingers just dare not go.

See? I think this stiletto’s grandmother was a shish kabob stick. And look where she is now!
