This week’s fairy tale was The Darning Needle. The story centres around a darning needle complaining about being used roughly by the hands that use it. If I’m honest the darning needle is a little whiny! Readers might believe that she gets what she deserves…She breaks and is stuck together by wax, then she gets washed down the drain and ends up in the gutter and then some urchins play around with her- even sticking her into an egg. She has some terrible luck. As a reader, I certainly didn’t feel sorry for the darning needle as she definitely thought she was a cut above the rest!
