If any of you having been following my posts for Vintage Thingy Thursday hosted by Suzanne at Colorado Lady, then you know that I have been posting about my great grandmother's quilts that my sister, mom and I all have. She did amazing work and if this is your first time reading my blog then check her quilts out on my sidebar at Genevieve's work. At last I have run out of quilts to post about. So I thought it was only fair of me to post something that her husband, Charles used.
Charles was a man of many trades, but was a skilled sheet metal worker I am told. Last summer when we were in Ohio visiting the old homestead, my dad gave me one of his tools that was still laying around.
I have no idea of its proper name. Dad said he would use it to bend the sheet metal. The reason it is all black, is because it was in the barn fire a long time ago. It is as heavy as can be too made of cast iron. I think it was probably even hand made. Anyway that is my story for today. Hope everyone has a great week.
