Lost or MIA? My Favorite Needle has gone AWOL - I have used this needle constantly for over five years - yes over five years! So - where is it? There I was stitching in my favourite stitching position (sideways on the sofa with my feet up) when disaster struck and I dropped my needle. So where is it? Did it feel over-worked and under-paid? Has it gone on vacation? Is there a needle heaven? I have lost it on other occasions but it's always turned up. I know I have plenty more needles but ... this one is smooth; it's easy to thread; I miss it! 

Sew Peacock is stitched and almost ready for release.

Wendy Jo's Emblem of Love RR arrived here this morning so I will be working on that later today. I love the CC Wavy Navy colour she chose for this. It's a shame I have to stitch a section which I have already stitched on other RRs but I suppose this is inevitable when we all started on different sections.

It's another sunny day here in paradise (eh ... I mean Deal) and Tommy the tortoise is already out of his box this morning and wandering around the garden. For those of you who asked questions about him on my previous post go *here* and read past posts about him.

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    I have lost three needles over the past week... Somewhere in / under the sofa... I have not yet started using My Favorite Needle which you gave me : do you want me to loan it to you ?
    Can't wait to meet with the famous Tommy who had gone into hiding upon my first visit.

    How terrible, I always have a magnet next to me and you will have to search the whole area, believe me it works!! I hope you find it soon.

    Thanks for showing the needle make, must have a look into that.

    I panic when I lose my fav 28 petite, more incase one of the kids steps on it but it's sooo annoying. We're down in Kent at Easter visiting my in-laws so I hope the weather stays nice. We always wander into Deal at some point.

    From the moment I started sharing my space with two cats I haven't lost a single needle. Now I just break them... LOL!! Hope YFN shows up soon, all refreshed and ready to go!!!

    I've never heard of My Favorite Needle before. I hope you find yours! I bet, if you go about the sofa with a magnet, it might turn up...

    I usually can find needles with my magnet - but last time I think it fell into a black hole! Hope you find yours!

    I have a hand held magnet that has been wonders in my finding lost needles. Hope yours shows up.

    Oh how funny! Not really. I am sure your needle will show up when you least expect it!
    I can't imagine keeping a needle for 5 years. My needles turn black and I have to pitch them on a regular basis.
    Have you ever tried Piecemaker needles? They are wonderful!!!

    I hope that you have found your needle. I am constantly dropping mine under the dinner table. I send my three year old under there with a torch and she finds it for me, she thinks it's a great game.
