Not exactley needlepoint, but I got my needle & thread fix today trying to repair the zipper in grandson's kindergarden suit. It is so thick that my fingers are sore from pulling the needle through all the layers. I'll probably do it over by machine later, but he'll be able to close the zipper tomorrow. It's freezing here, so that was the main goal anyway.
Zippers, need to work more with them, I am sure they get easier with more practice.
