Experimental Stitching

I got to pull out my purse project container while my car was being serviced. I had this bit of perforated paper that I had spritzed with dylusions ink.

The thread is a ply of unknown naturally colored gray wool (probably romney) plied against a ply of white corriedale (from a Ewe named Eugenia).

And I have to say as I've gotten older, it's become much more difficult to thread a needle. I've spent as long as 20 minutes on a bad day. But this beauty is thread in 3 seconds at most. It's called a Spiral Eye Side Threading Needle and can be found at (no affliation or anything, just thrilled to bits).

Yes! Thanks for the info on these needles!! They will make perfect gifts for my mom and MIL for Mother's Day this year. Especially if I can pair them with a felt needle book, ala Erin Lincoln! :) I need to check out the rest of your blog ... you're a wealth of crafty knowledge! :)
