Christmas Gifts - Needle Threader & Pendant - Totusmel Giveaway

I'm still trying to get caught up from Christmas with my blog posts. I wanted to post a picture of my new needle threader that I got as a gift at Christmas from my daughter. It has the big eye so you can get a large thread in the hole. It is made by Clover. I like how the actual threader is protected and won't get bent like my other one. The only thing I wish was different, it should have a hole or something so you can attach it to a chatelaine or ribbon so it doesn't fall in between the couch cushions. LOL!

I also received this awesome glass pendant from my Mom. It opens up and you can put tatting in between the glass. I put a butterfly in there for now. It is a really cute pendant.

I just signed up for an awesome Giveaway by Totusmel. Check it out, if you haven't already - She creates some very unique pieces of tatted jewelry.

Thanks for visiting my blog!!

Hi Carol! That needle threader is too cool! I want one even though I'll lose it between the couch cushions and not find it for three months. Love that glass pendant, too! Can you find out where your mom got it? I'd like to give one to my mom.

Hi Steph, My Mom got the glass pendant last year when she was in Texas at The NutCracker Market. It is like a big craft festival. They have this market every year in November I believe.

Hi TattingChic, thanks for stopping by and for inviting me to your giveaway. Congratulations or on 100th blog.

Hi Joy, I really like the needle threader, I just wish it had a little loop so I could attach it to my chatalaine.
