The other day, Jewels posted a photo of her bent beading needle, so I figured I should show you mine. It’s a John James extra long size 12 beading needle. It measures 3″ long, to be exact. My needle is not bent nearly as much as Jewels’ is – but it does have a rather nice curve to it.
The reason my needle is so curved is because I have to push it through at least 10 layers of felt, then I have to pull it out the other side! I guess now I know I don’t need to buy a curved embroidery needle – I can simply make my own! 😮
And, as you can see, I’ve been putting a lot of miles on that needle lately! Miles of Nymo thread!
Beading is hard work, but since today is Labor Day, I think I’ll take the day off! 😀
