Honoring old and new needles in Tokyo

Angela of Sake’ Puppets made this needle keeper as a proper place to store her beloved sewing needles. I love that she made a pocket in the back for the prettily packaged ones. This, after attending a Harikuyou Needle Festival where she put to rest one of her spent needles in tofu. Yes you read that right. Go HERE to get details of the needle ceremony. So worth a trip to her blog.
