I Call Myself NEEDLEBENDER For A Reason
It's been a while since I've hand quilted, and it won't take long. I've almost forgotten how. I had to get a new thimble; I needed one that wouldn't fall off all the time, and it's working a little better than the other one.
I might give the size 10 needles a try with a different project. The lady at the quilting store said she has used these size 10 needles on a queen size quilt and is still using the same needle that she started with.
I had the size 10 needle bent in about 15 minutes of quilting---hence the name NEEDLEBENDER. If I weren't quilting in the ditch that might not happen. I'll give it another try on something else.
