Just when it was time to sew the ends on the Broadstreet Mittens from hell I lost the only tapestry needle I had. I had to use a toothpick The mittens have tested every ounce of patience and creativeness I can muster
I keep all my little bits (tiny scissors, stitch markers, needles) in a hinged metal tin that came filled with SweetTarts candy. I know lots of people use those Altoid tins. Well, I bought a strong magnet (meant to be used as a sew-in purse clasp. I stuck it to the inside top of my little tin, and my metal needles stick right to it on the inside so I can find them easily. And when I'm working on a project, the magnet is strong enough that if I set my needle down on the outside top of the tin, it hold the needle there so it doesn't run away from me when I'm not looking.
