Fifty {Two} Shades of Grey - Week 19

Some people may know what this is straight away but others may struggle picking it. No it's not a colander / strainer depending upon what part of the world you are from.
If you are a crafter you may know what it is but only if you like hand sewing.

It is of course a stitching template, well part of one, for piercing holes for hand stitching on layouts and projects. It is definitely well used as evidenced by the scratches from my awl across the surface.
I bought this one on our local online auction website, TradeMe, having never sewn on a page before. It has become an often used tool especially on layouts, though it recently got a work on on the ATC's I am making at the moment. (More on them later)
