Not a quick sewing job

Threading that needle

I had an operation on my eyes a few years ago and my long distance sight is great, it is the up close that is the problem.  I need glasses to read and sew, even to knit and threading a needle can take a bit of time.  I found a post the other day on just how to get that needle threaded, without too much fuss, and it works.  I was attracted to the article because of the Normal Rockwell illustrations.  Those expressions.

The name of the site was"artofmanliness.com" Last place you would think you would find out about threading a needle.  (My daughter is a leather worker and she told me about this site.)

Anyway here is the link.

They also have a great collection of riddles for kids.   I can keep the grandchildren entertained with these.

Not the kind of web page I would usually land on.
