First thanks for the ideas for quilt names – I am going with “X Marks the Spot” it was one that I had been thinking of and when quite a few of you suggested it also I thought that was the right one to go with.
Lately it seems that I am seeing more and more stick on thimbles then used to be available. I seem to try out almost all of them and reject most. Have any of you tried out this kind? Poke-Dot-Sticky Thimbles. I saw this at the Nancy Notions web page and on Keepsake Quilting. Do they work? I have not ordered them, maybe one day. Click on the photo and it will go to the details. (I hope – I connected it right)
Another new one I have seen isn’t actually a thimble but a very thin flexible rubber disc called “Needle Grip It”? pad for your finger tips to assist in pulling the needles through fabric – I normally keep a little rubber gripper on hand for that but I have ordered a package of these to see how they work – comes in a package of 70 and it says they stick on your fingers even through light hand washing. I ordered this one from Connecting Threads, click on the photo and it will go to the details.
I think I have tried almost every known thimble out there in quilt land but I know I will stick with my hand held thimble for at the floor standing quilting frame which lets me quilt in all directions although the stick on thimbles come in really handy there as well.
