What the...?

so as you may know, mr. z has accepted a job at Texas Tech and is moving to the great state of Texas at the end of the month. this means that if i want all of my shit (by which I mean all of my very important things) to make it to Texas, they have to be packed up and ready to go when he is.

in order to cut down on the amount of junk that needs to be moved from state A to state B, i am attempting to go through all my stuff and weed out that which is less than desirable. i thought that i had done this the last time i moved, but apparently i am very adept at accumulating stuff. excellent, in fact.

while going through my sewing basket, i came across one of the following. and then i found another one... then two more. the only thing is, i have no idea what they are for.



the fact that they are in my sewing basket leads me to think they are some sort crafting item, though i've been known to stash stuff in random spots before, so that's not neccessarily true. so i need some help. anyone know what these are?? mom? ros?

mysterious! i don't have one in my sewing basket... they look like little drawer spacers.

Oh, I know! It's a set of, um, colorful plastic different sized things. I've no idea but it is quite intriguing.

Absolutely no idea. I'm not crafty in any way. But, my kids would love those things.

Well, my first guess with absolutely everything is, "is it edible?" Because they look like giant and multi-colored pieces of licorice.

have you figured out what they are? :)

My guess is that you use them to wind thread on when your spool comes unspun. Or you use some thread but you still have some leftover on your needle? They look like they'd make some great straight edges, too, actually.
