Stopped at a garage sales on the way to work this morning. Found this great bow tie quilt top - all hand pieced. Then two tins full of buttons and a darning mushroom :). Nice way to start the day. Now do I finish the quilt by hand or machine? I hate to ruin it's charm.

A darning mushroon is used to darn socks. My Nan used to use it to finish the shoulders on coats, the points on fitted bodices and darn the elbows on jackets.

The darning mushroom is the wooden implement in the picture under the tins.
