New: Yesterday the mail person delivered my needles. This makes me so happy! I have done a lot of research on needles and discovered that I really like the Topstitch needle the best. It makes my stitching line really straight and pretty.
The Universal needle is rounded on the tip and it will jump over to miss piercing a thread in the fabric, thus making your stitching line not be perfectly straight. Now for the average person this is no big deal but for someone who is an ADD quilter with perfectionistic tendencies it made me even more nuts than I usually am, and some of you know that can be pretty nuts! I was so happy to get the delivery I cleaned and oiled my machine and promptly replaced the needle.
Both things, old and new make me very happy. Joseph just came in from work and told me he still likes it and wants me to finish it for him. I guess I need to go shopping. I was trying to not buy much this year, but this is too far along to set it aside again.
