Stitch like Cat Woman

Michelle Pfeiffer As Catwoman*

Remember Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman in the 1992 film Batman Returns?  Her claws were trolley needles, modified somewhat by the costume department.  And how does this relate to needlepoint?  Trolley Needles are laying tools that clip onto a finger—or in my case my left thumb.  Needlepoint for Fun's latest e-newsletter talks about using a trolley needle here.

See?  We can all be movie stars as we stitch!  By the way, I've never poked myself with my trolley needle, no matter how long I've worn it during a long stitching session.
