Default Never again

Never again will I put needles in my pin cushions. I pulled all these out of my tomato pin cushion today. The needles with thread were the ones I had put in the cushion. All the rest were buried inside..... Those are some big needles that were buried.... the tiny ones I use could be lost forever. So, never again. I guess I'd better get busy making some needle cases.

Well now I might find some of my lost needles. But most of mine had 2-3" of thread. Oh well I'll still check!

I have a magnetic holder for needles. The pins have one also. I gave away all my tomatoes.

It's fun to open up an old old pincushion. Lots of needles made from good steel inside.

How did you get them out? Did you cut the pincushion up to retrieve them? That's alot of lost needles!

No, I didn't cut the pincushion. I just squeezed it till I felt a needle and then used pliers to grab hold of it and pull it out. I have some really skinny pliers.
