Today I had to sew some buttons on a jacket before they completely fell off. I couldn't get the needle through the fabric and had to find a thimble. Turns out I don't have a normal thimble. I only have this one, bought in Mexico. It's silver and turquoise and really pretty and needs polishing. I didn't think about it at first because it is usually with this beauty with her thimble. I named her Woman Wearing Thimble Under Glass. I'm really clever like that.
Here she is not under glass.
Anyway, my decorative thimble worked as it should, and my jacket's buttons are securely re-attached.

But to read a really en-GROSS-ing story about sewing, check out Murr Brewster's post about her sewing adventure.


(Can I cheat or what!!! Two posts in a row linking to someone else's writing.)

I can't tell you how many times I have dug through all my sewing stuff looking for a thimble! Seems I don't have one anymore - yours is just beautiful and the folk art is cool!

That's not cheating! That's right neighborly. You go ahead and link whenever you want. What an outstanding thimble you've got there. Dave thinks if he put a thimble on my head, it might just slip right over it.

Lovely thimble. Mine are just plain ordinary ones, I can't hand-sew without one. I still have my very little one that I got when I was 4 or 5, and just inherited my mom's.
