A new WIP! :)

My little town! This is the paper copy, on my design wall! I found the picture and had it increased in size.  I am totally over the moon with it and I am plotting and planning!

These are two more pictures.  I am in the midst of tracing and numbering but oh what fun!

I am linking up with the The Needle and Thread Network!

Threaders

Do you use one? What is your threader method?

I ran into problems this week and I realized that I really can’t get by without one.

Here is my collection:

My preferred one is:

IMG_7694

Is is/was my trusty clover, however it doesn’t seem to work anymore.  One time it works, the next few times it doesn’t.  So:

IMG_7695

I keep trying with these but to no avail :(…yep Jen, still not working for me. So:

IMG_7696

Back to basics, however, the wire on these so fine that they seem to break 😦 So:

I stocked up on wire needle threaders and bought a new clover desk threader and:

I picked up these needles and reused my old clover needle threader and lo and behold,  it works, so now I have a spare clover and back ups and these needles are perfect for hexing and applique.

What is your preference? Do you know something that I don’t know?
