Tweedle deedles . . .

. . . time for new needles!!!

Soooooo I don't replace my needles as often as I should.  *cringe*

Doing such delicate, intricate sewing requires a very thin needle ~ and they do tend to bend rather easily.  Size 11 is the largest I use ~ I've added a piece of thread to the pic to give you some idea of how very fine they are.   I have actually had thread unravel from trying to get it through the eye!

I'll admit there are times when it is advantageous to have a curved needle at hand ~ but then there are times when you just need to pitch 'em and start fresh! 


  1. LOL Laura, do you think, hahahahaha. What in the world did you do with that poor green headed one??? I don't know how you work in such a small format.

    Have a great day!!

  2. LOL, had to laugh at Brendas comment, I don't know how you do it, it would just send me over the edge trying to thread a needle that small! Then again, basket weaving is suppose to be calming, but I couldn't do that either! I'll think of you everytime I see or hear of needles!


  3. Oooooooo, sorry Branda ~ can't answer your question 'cause ya know, what happens in the sewing room STAYS in the sewing room! ;)

  4. Those needles went through the horrors!
    Mine don't look too much better!
