Don't you hate it when....

... your very most favorite needle starts to get so bent from use that you have to toss it out?
Does anyone else use their needles until they look like this? (or is it just me?)

Oh well, all in the pursuit of happiness! lol

It's amazing how one needle can be so different to another so yes, I have my favourites too that 'get thrashed'!! Congratulations on the house sale - I hope you can find another property soon. Sounds like you had a lovely Christmas - how special to have a grandchild to share it with!!

You must have worked that poor little needle so hard!!!
I just haven't had the time to do enough stitching of late with all the goings on here - but I'm about to change that!

I loved seeing the new photos of darling Neve - she is a real cutie!

lol - I thought I was the only one that bent needles! I can manage to bend one in just one sewing session - is it me, or are the needles make so cheaply now?

even more worse is loosing it yourself on a workbench to rival a apie;s nest!
I have a good one going now that is nicely bent and still i use it on tiny beads when embellishing. signed, magpie sonja
