Such a Deal

I brought some string art projects with me, mostly to keep me busy but also to entertain Rachel. However, I was in need of a needle large enough to use with crochet thread. So off I went to Moudy's on Road 9. What a deal I came away with! This package cost a whopping 1 Egyptian pound--the equivalent of about 20 cents US. I knew it wasn't going to be great, but all I really needed from it was a needle. The tiny scissors didn't work at all and broke apart basically when I touched them. The needle threader didn't fare any better. Most of the needles' eyes are so bad that there is no way any thread at all is going to work. But the one needle I needed works just fine, so my 1 pound was well spent, don't you think?

A pound well spent indeed.
