OK Quiltin Friends... another word of the day....

Quick, I was chatting with a friend.... and this little item was on my desk... and I was asked to describe it.   What is a FOB???  A fob is an object used to make manual access easier. It may refer to:
  • Fob pocket, a small pocket in trousers or waistcoats originally intended to hold a pocket watch
  • Key fob, a medallion used to identify a key ring, or position on the ring    A key fob is a generally decorative and at times useful item many people often carry with their keys, on a ring or a chain, for ease of tactile identification, to provide a better grip, or to make a personal statement. Key fobs are often called "key rings" or "key chains" in colloquial usage. The word fob may be linked to the low German dialect for the word Fuppe, meaning "pocket", however, the real origin of the word is uncertain.
So we QUILTERS  have a FOB..... that thing-a-ma-jig that we place on our scizzors or sewing tools as a personal ID or way to decorate and pickup our stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!
here is a picture of  FOB's for rotary cutters

Another quick net-seach.....Key Fob Pockets were designed to protect your USB drives from the rigors of travel and keep it all close at hand, but they can also hold paper money, a lip balm, gum, etc. Key Fob
