Yesterday Pauline, an online quiltclub friend, came to visit me, to show and tell me about using the Thimblelady thimble, but also Ted Storm's Thumb Thimble. We had a great time, with a chat and a stitch. Thanks once more, Pauline!
That last thimble, Ted's one, is a very promising alternative for me, as long as I can't use my right hand properly for quilting the traditional way.
I bought Ted's Thumb thimble two years ago and now it is the perfect thing to work with for me, I think. I'm reading and asking for information about a hoop, with or without stand. If that's all arranged, I can start practicing; many hours and kilometres shall be spent practicing, but I WANT to learn it.
Practice makes Perfect.
I am so happy with this new possibility.
Another new little project I am into, is making crochet ice chrystals. The pattern is from Eline's Winter Huis book . They are so cute!
The diameter is 5cm. / 2".
I think I'm gonna make lots of them and drop and hang them, for decoration ofcourse, all over my own lovely Winter House :>)
Just finished cutting the fabric scraps for my swap partners in Marcha's Charm - Club fabric swap.
And I sent thirteen machine-sewn
to the USA.
'No Impact Week' has started and I must say I enjoy being in. I am discovering that I have lived frugally and simply for many years; not being the diehard type with the goathair socks, though.
It is good to live that consciously for one week, finding out what one can do and leave for a better and easier, slowed down life, without having the feeling of missing much. On the contrary: life gets better, richer, more relaxed and satisfying.
This was Mrs. Zondagssteek's Monday Preach; won't do it again.
Have a nice day, evening or sweet dreams!
