Here's the book I'm using:
How many needles have you lost? Feel free to estimate. Tell us your best “lost needle” story.Gosh, I have no clue...after all, they're lost! I'd have to say that I've lost needles over the years. Best guess would be about 30. That works out to a little less than 1 per year. Some of my "lost" needles really weren't, I just couldn't remember where I put them. The usual places are my shirt (it's a cheap brooch); very close to the edge of my scroll rods (hard to see); or the arm of a chair. Since DH bought me a glider rocker a few years back, the chair arm is wooden so that option really doesn't exist any more.
Eventually there comes a time when you’re not feeling well, whether it’s the flu or a cold or something else entirely. The question is, do you manage any stitching when you’re under the weather or does it just have to wait for better days?
