I almost used a glove needle for embroidery the other day, that would have been a disaster! Can you imagine ruining a project like that? I would have cried.

Really? What do you do with your needles when you're hand stitching? I remember years ago I used to stick the needle I was using into the knee of my pants, that ended when I had an "accident" *never again*.


I keep my hand-sewing needles in the pack they came in and if I'm sewing and need to put down the project I just stick the needle in the extra fabric of what I'm working on or sometimes in the side of the spool of thread or embroidery floss. And then I've got these 2 random needles that are stuck in my junk-basket by my bed, I don't know how they got there, but I figure I better keep them there in case I need a needle and can't find my pack.

That would have been a disaster.  Most of the time the wrong needle won't do more than cause thread tangles, puckering, and lots of seam ripping.  But those cutting edges on a glove/leather needle could cause some serious damage!

And then I've got these 2 random needles that are stuck in my junk-basket by my bed, I don't know how they got there, but I figure I better keep them there in case I need a needle and can't find my pack.

I often find needles stuck in random places.  Right now I have a couple sticking out of the wrist cushion on my mouse pad.  I was sewing with watching netflix on the computer and that seemed an easy place to stick them.  Usually I remember to put them back but occasionally I find them much later and wonder what I was thinking when I stuck them there.

That's really a wonderful idea and so beautifully executed.  Is there anything you can't do?  Smiley

Oh that totally reminds me, the weirdest place I've found a needle. A couple weeks ago the space bar on my keyboard was sticking and the little lint brush and can of air weren't fixing it so I popped the key off and underneath was a sewing needle. My computer geek friend totally chewed me out for that one, he didn't think it was nearly as funny as I did.

So. Awesome.  I lust.  I doubt I'll ever get one made myself, but oh, if I could barter or beg or buy or steal.

Or just... learn to quilt.  That too.

This is gorgeous! I love the fabrics and the way you put them together. Great work!

I will now embarrass myself by admitting I only have one needle for my sewing machine.  Cheesy

LOL...yep plenty of things I can't do.  I just have too many crafty hobbies!

You sound like my mom.  I mentioned changing needles to her and she replied that the only time she ever changed a needle is if she broke one and she used a universal needle for everything.  She use to sew a lot when we were kids but ended up having problems with her machine, getting frustrated with it, and gave up sewing.  I jokingly told her if only she knew to use the right needle type and change them out when they got dull that she might still be sewing!

Well, I don't know if that is true Chris.   But everything I've seen you do, you do well!  Smiley

Hehe, I'm guilty of only using the universal needle too.  Luckily I don't do any fancy sewing.  Smiley
