Several years ago I participated in a course held by Susan Elliott to create a needlebook.
My needle book has been well used.
The last page of this book is where broken and worn needles are stored.
I place my needles in a piece of batting and put that in a small container and bury it in my rose garden.
I have made several needle books now and given them as gifts.
Hari-Kuyo is a fascinating tradition that has been celebrated for several hundred years.
To read more about how I made my first needlebook and lots more about this wonderful tradition see here.
Susan has a post about the festival and how to create your own needlebook here .
Have you made a needle book?
