    Another Harbor Freight Find!

    Harbor Freight has a tent sale this week. Bought a magnetic parts holder for one dollar! It's silver and 4" will look great holding stray pins and needles.

    I bought one of those a while back. I drop so many pins when pinning that I use it to pick up all the pins on the floor. Way cheaper then a magnetic wand.

    That's a great use for it especially since I usually sew barefoot!

    Your dog is precious - is Dingle his name?

    I've got a 4" one and a 6" one. Love both. The big one is my "go to" pincushion!

    I also own the telescoping magnetic wand--------------------a must have for someone who's got bad joints. Pick up dropped forks and spoons in the kitchen all the time, too!

    I have three and love them, but be careful around your computerized machines!...
    I keep one on the cutting table and one at each end of my Mid-arm quilting frame.
    Thanks for sharing!
    I actually swiped 1 from DH. LOL

    Thanks. No his name is Brody. He's a 6 yr old Boxer. I also have a 2 yr old female named Shelby. Such fun dogs. Never a dull moment when they are awake.

    I love these too but don't put it near anything electronic. Magnets do not work well with them.
