Photo Hunters - Narrow



Should be an interesting week for Photo Hunters. We were searching for a picture of something narrow. I'll be interested to see what TN Chick comes up with this week.

I didn't think I was going to be able to think of anything and then suddenly thought of this.

Photo Hunt -Narrow






I think of how narrow this is every time I'm trying to stick a tread through that tiny space.




MANY MANY thanks to all of you who left birthday wishes for my son Shorty. He was blown away! You all are too sweet! (Anyone who didn't have a chance, is, of course, still welcome!)

I think I'm getting old. I can't thread my needle as well as I did a year ago.

Oh, I hope Shorty had a wonderful birthday. ^-^

Ah, very nice work with this theme. As a kid, I used to threat my Mum's needles!!

Thank you for the wonderfully generous comment on my Narrow theme photos.

And tell your son I hope he had a great day and that he has a very special year.

The hole has got to be a littel bigger for me to have a three point shoot of the thread.

Also thank you for appreciating the picture I use for my blogger profile. Thanks to Getty Images. :)

These days I can barely see the needle, let alone the eye! I have no chance of threading a needle without one of those threader thingies...

Happy weekend and a belated (?) happy birthday to Shorty!

Hey Ann! I think your needle has a bigger hole compared to mine. :P Mine are so small that it took me 15 minutes just to get the thread through the hole. I'm still trying to get some tungsten wires that is thin enough to go through the hole but I can't find any around..~~sweat~~

Did you know that a folded thin wire can help? Maybe this is a good idea for your further sewing.. hehe.

Have a great weekend ahead and if you have the time, do check out my another interpretation at http://www2.crizlai.com/2008/02/02/photo-hunters-narrow/

I need to use a needle threader now, provided I can find it. Good choice for the theme Ann and have a great weekend.

everydayhealy said...

I certainly agree with you, Ann. That's why I can never be good in sewing. hahaha....

napaboaniya said...

Pretty straining to tread needles.. signs of aging :(

Sue said...

Narrow and frustrating lol! Great shot!

Heather said...

Needles have always been my bane. Very frustrating. Great choice.

pat said...

Wow - great shot of the needle!

Happy Weekend.

Heart of Rachel said...

Great idea for the theme. It's sometimes challenging to put a thread through a needle.

Beck said...

I just threaded a needle for The Girl and YOU ARE NOT KIDDING! That IS narrow!

the teach said...

Whoa! That is narrow! Threading needles used to be pretty easy for me. And then of course there is that thingy that helps you to do it - it looks like a lasso... Thanks for visiting me, Ann! Glad Shorty had a good B-day!

si kiky said...

best narrow so far...:)

Pato & Pearl said...

Wow, great interpretation and picture. It's been quite a while I use a needle and thread.... ;)

eye of the needle... Wow.. that's a great take on Narrow!!

Expat Traveler said...

now that is a great find for narrow! I'm up too.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Great choice for narrow! The opening in a needle is certainly narrow!

Sarge Charlie said...

this one could be site of the week, very creative post.

leslie said...

This is great! I have trouble threading a needle now, too.

Dianne said...

Ha! My husband said I should do a needle since I have one in my hand all the time! Good choice.
Your webpage design is awesome too!

Natalie said...

That's perfect!!!

mousey said...

this is a great idea!

happy hunting!

A. said...

Yes, and I can remember wondering why it was that my grandmother always needed me to do the threading. Now I knwo!

Utah Mommy said...

It is indeed hard to put the thread on this very narrow hole of needle. Why can't they make it a little bigger hole lol! Perfect shot for the week's theme! Have a great weekend!

BlurMommy said...

I have the same problem too. Great shot!

butterrummy said...

Good choice

It is very hard to get though that tiny little hole!

JC said...

That is wonderfully clever! I love how you composed this shot... just terrific!

jenny said...

That is very narrow!! Is it sticking in a real tomato? I have a pincushion that's a tomato shape! Maybe that's an apple.

Thanks for your visit and comment!

denz said...

Happy Weekend Everyone!!!

Andrée said...

What a great photo of such a difficult object to shoot. I have to tell you, I thought at first that that was your finger that you had stuck the needle into for the sake of your art!! I'm glad it's not!

ipanema said...

great idea! truly painful to the eyes trying to get in the thread. how narrow!

thanks for the visit. :)

Susanne said...

It certainly is Ann! Too narrow for me. Another reason why I try to avoid picking on up at all costs. ;v)

Katney said...

I am so glad my new sewing machine has a needle threader. I never used the one on my older machine, but I sure love the one on this one and use it all the time. I get really p-o-ed when it gets out of adjustment.

Ann, last year you participated in my Favorite Ingredients Friday Chocolate Edition recipe exchange. I’m hosting a second edition today, in preparation for Valentine’s Day, and I’ll hope you join in again!
