    My "new" needles are in the cases that they were packed in i.e. Schmetz. The used needle that I placed "loose" in the container was only used for a short while to top stitch. I believed it to still be worth keeping so I put it in the large container but not back in it's original container. Hope this makes sense.

    What a great idea!
    Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
