I had a question about my last post......Nancy in NY asked me about the needle keep I had in one of the photos........
Here you go.   This is a Needle Park Avenue.  Not sure if I bought it at a trade show or online or a shop.  

 You are supposed to be able to write-on and wipe-off the symbols.    
Hmm......I had to resort to using a post-it to mark with the current symbols.

You secure it in place with the magnet back.

My needles are loaded and ready.

My friends know I am all about gadgets......don't even invite me to a Pampered Chef Party I just may win the game they play about who owns the gadget! I am discriminating though, is has to be useful.  I really need to know I am going to give it the college try to make it a favorite.  And I just don't buy it because it is just something pretty to look at.  

Isn't it always about having the right tools?   The right tools make the job easier.    That's my story and I'm sticking to it!  Do you have a special tool or gadget you use?

Oh...I could certainly use one of these. I have a magnet like that so maybe I can make one. I can see another project on the way!

I own one of those too but have yet to use it. Do you find your stitching goes faster with it?

I have been tempted to try and make something like this. I think I will just look one up though. It really is a handy idea!
I don't think I have a special gadget. Maybe once I get one of these needle parking thingies that will it!
