Let me just warn you from the get-go - this is a ridiculously trivial post.
My recent whining about sore digits led me to consider the ever-so-humble thimble. A couple of comments came in regarding methods of protecting fingers, and I so appreciate them. I dug around to see what I had on hand.
This is the thimble I have been using. It is so worn that the needle often gets stuck in the same hole time after time. Why I don't break down and get out a better thimble, I do not know. I guess I just want to get all the use possible out of the thing. I try to slide it around a bit on my finger so that some other spot will do the work, but it always slips back.
I have a plethora of thimbles with similar holes that have poked all the way through. I may need an intervention; why I have held onto these used/useless thimbles?
Maybe I could get just one more session's use out of it?
I suppose that is my thinking. I've never been one to be overly penurious, but I just hate to waste a bit of a perfectly good thimble. They only wear out in that one spot, after all.
Listen to me complaining because my thimble doesn't suit me.
Wonder what I'd do if I had real troubles??
Happy Quilting, Friends!
