So I went to JoAnn's looking for a metal thimble that had an open top like the plastic one did but more sturdy ... I like to quilt lots of curves and that is active quilting! lol
No go there but when we got home I did find just what I as after at Walmart online only.. so I ordered it on May 15. Finally... after calling the shipper and waiting some more it showed up yesterday!!!!
|Connecting Threads currently has this on sale under $10!!!!|
The adjustment "wings" were so sturdy once moved it was a breeze for MY HONEY to get it sized to my liking! lol It is not easy or "floppy" adjustment. That is why my honey had to use his expertise to help me size it.. I imagine if you don't have a handy honey you could use pliers which is how he got involved in my quest for a good fit.
Well the fit is excellent... take a look at my first curves with a thimble on :)
Also this flimsy is now backed up to a work in progress as I am adding borders to it I have decided..
He turns 1 on June 6 so stay tuned to the birthday loot we have for him... Rick is gonna wrap it for me in a box he can play with as the contents are clothes and a book! lol But it is what he needs!!! :)
Well.. I am off to put in some more stitches with my thimble! Hope you enjoyed this Thimble story! lol Pun intended! :) Linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching... as I hope my Sunday is full of hand stitches!!!
