It is jut a regular sewing one but on the bigger side. I have a really huge one that is great for threading wool and really blunt but it was too big to go through the holes that the pin made. Just make sure it's not too sharp!

SO glad you came to visit!!!!
I am so so so jealous! You know that JIm Carey movie where they wipe certain parts of your brain? I want them to wipe Mindy and Gilmore Girls so I can watch it all again.
Welcome, I hope you visit again!!
Yeah, totes weak so that's why I need to try and log off, sometimes I delete my app. #crackhead
Mindy is my spirit animal.
That was the plan, now that I have you here I will make you stay, Mwahahahah
Hahaha, not yet but he has been going on it a bit. Early days!
Let's just say that I'm watching it on something else other than a TV.... totes legit. Is it all true? Are Jewish mums really like that? I want one!!
