I know all you needle people out there will probably echo my sentiments when I say that sometimes it seems I need a needle's eye this large and a very fine thread in order to thread a needle quickly anymore. My favorites for hand quilting used to be #11, and even with a very fine wire threader, its tricky. Those utility lines up at the top seem to pull off the job effortlessly. This streetscape view of the Space Needle is from the Cascade neighborhood.
