Favourite Things Friday
Sorry this is a little bit hastily put together in the 5 minutes before school pick up.
Those that know me well know that I cannot hand sew without my trusty thimblelady thimble, so much so that I have been known to get in an absolute panic when I lose it (so now I have 2, one of which is still in its original package put somewhere safe, just don't know where at the minute). This is the old style of her thimble, which can be used for all sewing not the funny cone one that is for hand quilting (which I don't do very much of). The blue one is a new silicone one that I have been using to save my index finger and when I really do too much there are two more in the packet that I can use on my left hand. You see I find that I use different fingers when I sew (especially embroidery) not just the one with the thimble on it and they all get red raw.
So my silver thimble is my favourite thing this week and has been for quite a number of years and doesn't show any sign of wearing out so I might be old and grey by the time I have to use that other one.
