hari-kuyo to you!

Thanks to Coni Spinster, here’s the story about the Japanese Festival of Broken Needles.

In my case, I think I actually would have to pick up the needle to have any chance of breaking it. I’ve come to the conclusion that I made an ill-advised decision to halt work on LHN’s “Gingerbread Cottage”. For some reason my ambition to stitch has gradually dwindled to just Thursday evenings on Stitch & Bitch night since setting this one aside. This was the last time I showed a photo, and I think I stopped stitching soon after. My thoughts now lean to resuming “Gingerbread” in the hopes of reversing the voodoo spell I’ve been under.


It’s almost halfway done, right? What am I waiting for?

I seem to only stitch on Stitch and Bitch nights too. I need to reverse my curse also. or just stop reading so much!

Your piece looks great! And you know what, I've never broken a needle in all my year of stitching - probably because I end up losing them someplace!
