I picked up some sewing goodies online last week:
Normally I wouldn't post about such an uninspiring combination, but I need to say two things about these products:
- Basting pins (that's bent safety pins to you and me) are amazing. I only used them on the little bit of quilting for my sister's Kindle cover, but they made pinning so much easier. Really. Love them. Totally necessary.
- Those needles. They are sharp little buggers! Much to my shame, this is the first time I've ever bought decent hand-sewing needles, and I can see that they're a different beast entirely to the cheap-o ones I usually use. I just lightly dinked my finger on the point while sewing and it bloody hurt. They're so thin and sharp, they sew like a dream.
That is the end of this public sewing announcement.
