Here is one of DH's most treasured tools - his collection of little tiny pencils that he uses for marking fabric. He does most of the cutting and won't use a rotary cutter. Makes his own patterns too. I tell him he is WAY out of date.
Anyway he won't throw any pencils out until they are so small the pencil sharpener eats them. He keeps a bundle of them like this and when they are all dull he hands them to me to sharpen.
I was using one today and thought you would all get a kick out of it.
