Last time my brother Alan was here he presented me with this:
Doesn’t look too exciting does it? It is a metal ruler with two super strong magnets snapped onto it. I didn’t realise what a useful little tool it was until the other day when I thought I would just wave it over the bobbins sitting on the shelf to see if it worked. Well it sure did. Five bobbins jumped onto it. They took some prising off too!
Look Mum - no hands!
So this is a new favourite tool. Great when I drop a bobbins/pins /needles on the floor.
