I'm A Magician!

Things are being transformed in the sewing room, as if by magic:

Fat quarters and satin ribbon have become personalized, drawstring, gift bags.

Gifts have become a mound of packages to be mailed.

Hand towels have become holiday helpers for the smallest of elves.

And the latest, greatest, transformation? I managed to take a simple, titanium, needle (running at warp speed) and turn it into a fishhook-like shape!
The object used to effect this change? My finger! I'll spare you a photo of that. See? I told you. I'm a magician! Don't try this at home, I'm a trained professional.

(I'll be fine... Mr. Goodneedle is an expert finger-wrapper.)
Life is Good!

Well Mrs Goodneedle,

I can see you have been busy. Your personalised gift wraps look amazing. I am sure whoever will receive them will truly love them too.

Whoa!! Ouch!! You can't have fingers out of commission this month! Hope you mend quickly. Mr. G can wrap fingers but can he wrap gifts??? ;-)

Put a needle through my finger two days ago too - ouch!!!! Thankfully it was just through the meaty side of my fingertip, not the fingernail, etc. It is already mostly healed. Hope yours heals quickly for you too!

Your sewing room is a regular production line and the products are looking wonderful. Shame about your finger, I hope it recovers fast

My goodness--you sure have been busy. Thank you for reminding me that I need to get packages in the mail....hope the finger is doing better. When I'm not putting the needle through my finger I'm trying to cut it off with the rotary cutter......
