Look What I Found . . .

at the Dollar Store!!

I just can not use a thimble.  It is awkward, regardless of the type I try and my finger gets major claustrophobia!!  So, one day after I had been binding a quilt with my bare finger and had poked it enough times that it was bleeding, I put a bandaid over the boo-boo.  And then I had an ah-ha moment and started using bandaids as my "thimble"!!

and look what I found ~

Colored bandaids!!  And at the Dollar Store!!  This is what you call a Cheap Thrill!!

So, through trial and error, I found that if I cut one end of the bandaid off and place it right on my finger where the needle hits, I have a bit more padding and the "thimble" lasts longer.

Then, I put the short cut-off end at the bottom and then rap the un-cut end over the finger and over the cut end.  It stays in place and and then when I am done, I just remove the "thimble" and start with a fresh one next time I need a "thimble"!!  Works great but don't wrap it TOO tight because then your finger will start to throb!!  Trust me on this one!!  :-))

Off to Stevensville, Montana in the morning for a quilt show and lots of beautiful scenery!!  Until next time!!
