This is what the giveaway I received was.
Thanks so much, Bette, from Reflections of a Desert Rat
This is what I received I hope the picture shows up!
My most favorite gadget in the package was a Needle Nannie. It helps keep your needle close at hand without worry of loosing it...check it out!!!
A "Needle Nannie" (and the name fits me perfectly as I am after all, the Quilting Nanny!) is a needle keeper or needle minder. It is a decorative metal "piece" with a magnet on the back...and an additional separate magnet...and you put the metal piece on the fabric you are sewing and the other magnet on the back and it snaps together and then because it is now fully magnetized... you just put your needle on the piece..and it stays there! When you are done with the needle, this little gadget holds it for you! Never a lost needle anymore. I have a pin cushion near, but always fiddle between the pins in the cushion and the needle. This is strong and holds the needle until you need it again! And the magnet is strong so no worry of it ever loosing its strength and falling off your fabric piece! They are about 1,1/2 inch circle size. Large enough to hold the needle and still find it yet small enough to not get in the way! I know it sounds silly, but I started using this Needle Nannie with may hand sewing of my fabric books and I don't see how I ever did hand sewing without it!
