My Favorite Thimble


Nancy in Norway is having a give-away for those who post a pictures of their thimbles on their blog. I have a few that I have collected, but I can not seem to get my camera to work right and the pictures always come out so blurry you can't even tell what they are. My daughter took a picture of this one for me - its my all time favorite thimble and the one I actually use. It was made to fit my finger and its just so pretty it looks like jewelry. I have forgotten to take it off before and worn it to work - that is how nice it fits. Sometimes its fits a little loose though, so I have an under-thimble sticky pad in it to help it stay tight. I will try to post some pictures of my collectible thimbles soon - if I can get my camera to work.
Be sure to check out Nancy's site. She has some beautiful thimbles posted and links to many more.

Your thimble is beautiful! I want a pretty thimble too! I guess I'd better start looking out for them at quilt shows.

Gorgeous thimble. Have you looked at the T.J. Lane thimbles? They're very pretty too -- and fit really well!
