This set of 3 small olive green and amber beaded counting and marking pins for cross stitch and needlepoint is a must for anyone who does counted thread embroidery. Use the pins to count from one stitching area to another, then mark the spot. Use another to check yourself by counting and marking from another stitching area to the previously marked spot. Or insert them at intervals on long rows of stitches to save yourself from recounting. The tips are blunt because the 'pins' are actually tapestry needles, so they won’t split the threads of your fabric like dressmaker or straight pins will. Each pin is 1 ¾” long. Rubber earring nuts are used to hold the pins in place.
They are also color coordinated with the Olivine and Amber Beaded Scissor Fob, http://www.etsy.com/listing/123739035, Large Olivine and Amber Counting Pins for needlepoint, http://www.etsy.com/listing/85832022, and a laying tool/sewing stiletto, http://www.etsy.com/listing/123739906, as shown in the last photo. If you purchase any three of the four coordinating pieces I will include a complimentary beaded needle threader.
