Several weeks ago in one of my quilting magazines I saw some wooden needle holders. I thought they were very unusual and different. I tore the page out knowing that one of our good friends does a lot of wood working. When he was over a few weeks ago, to bring my husband a pen he had created out of an antler shed, I showed him the needle holders and asked if he could possibly make me one sometime. The only thing he asked for was the cork toppers, luckily I had some left over from some craft project. Imagine my surprise when he called and wanted to bring me my needle holders. ( as in more than one). When I opened the box, I couldn't believe the workmanship and the creativity that he had put into them. They are all beautiful. My favorite is the one on the right which looks like a bowling pin. It is made from sycamore, the others are either dogwood or bamboo. I can't wait to start using them.
