Needles in a Haystack!

Most weeks, at the end of the school day, I spend a few hours in the company of a delightful 5-year old.

Today she enjoyed playing with the glass-headed pins in my favourite pincushion which once belonged to my grandmother.

Without any pins, I was able to squeeze it to extract any fine needles lurking in the middle.  I was astonished by the number I found – around 70!

Sound advice from my mother is to put needles in sideways – or use a needle holder!
