My duck has decided that its time to lose his land legs and set forth - shivers my shimbers to think of how cold it is out there on the high sees at this time of the year. I won't tell him, if you won't, but this boat only sails round and round in circles as its part of a mobile in my back room - but he thinks he's a sailor - so I will continue to humour him!!!

Many thanks for comments and clicks yesterday - they were very amusing and much appreciated - and number 19 had green peppers and fresh tomatoes cooked inside it - NO carrots!!
Lots of people guessed veggie - but no outright winner - although Mick wins on the number of casserole dishes that he got given as wedding presents !!!

Today is a still life with two unknown items in it. All were things found at Mum and Dad's home when we emptied it - but I've no idea what they are other than the cotton reels - any ideas?
Thanks for looking
Helen

I'm sure the thing with the little wheel is for producing a serrated line on paper, I have seen similar but not for a long time. (For pastry the edge of the wheel would zigzag rather than going in and out. I have one somewhere in the depths of a kitchen drawer.) The other item looks as though it might be used for sharpening a blade?
More importantly, this is a superb image. I like the space you've allowed for the thread to wind, that's the photographer's eye. And the processing gives a distant, almost ghostly feel.

Excellent processing that gives an appropriate 'feel' to the age of the subjects without overindulging the digital effects. A very fine still-life photo.
I regret that I can't identify the implements, though I can confirm that the other two things are cotton reels Wink

P.S.: Thank you for reminding me about the 'Colour blocks'; I seem to have forgotten them for a whole year!

I believe these are all sewing instruments. The serrated roller was used to trace a pattern onto fabric using carbon paper underneath. I think the metal object is a little hex wrench used to tighten sewing machine screws. It may also be a riveting tool used to put on snaps.
Your treatment of them is totally fantastic.

Love these bits and pieces. It's amazing how many people have ancient cotton reels like this. I know I've still got some cottons belonging to my grandmother.

Lovely arrangement and great use of textures.

Excellent still life Helen, great layout and I love the prcessing.

All specualation for me but I'd guess the same as everyone else for the spiked wheel and woder if you could use it on tougher material like leather in preparation for stitching?

My guess for the object in the centre is as a generic handle for a tool that requires both pressure and twisting - hence maybe the swivelling base that sits in your palm? I have a set of screwdriver bits that come with a handle like this, but maybe this is for an 'awl' instead?

Well, I'd have sworn there were some carrots in that casserole...
I think Tim's right about the serrated thingy being used for tougher materials like leather, which would otherwise be difficult to hand stitch. No idea at all about the other thingy, though. A great still life, Helen, like the textured background.

Nicely shot but it's a shame you didn't include the whole of the second cotton reel. Sad

Thanks Dave - I really didn't set this up for the right angle, as I needed drapes behind as well as below the cotton reels. I realised later that although I actually have got the whole cotton reel in, I could have done with more height above it
