My new Thimble swap

I have seen a lot of swaps around but this one was different for me. It was for a Thimble. How cute...
This is where I have signed up.

Go take a look...
I have seen many pretty thimbles around and a lot of them can't be used but how nice would it be to get one sent to you from across the world. Especially from someone you don't know.
This is the only special / decorative thimble I own. I bought it when I was on holidays in the UK....
I think it was BOURTON ON THE WATER. A pretty little village with a pretty little gift...
It has a cute decorative thimble, a beautiful pair of scissors and pin cushions for your needles. I just love it... It sits on the table next to me and I use it regularly....

So I signed up....

MY PARTNER is Sheryl from

Look at the thimbles that Sheryl owns. What a great selection. Sheryl likes to get thimbles that show or say where they are from. Well the one I am deciding does just that. It is a large country town / city that is near to where I live... Hope I can get the one I have seen. ( this will bee shown in a later post )

  2. Love the thimble you currently use. Bourton on the Water is about 45mins from where I live in England!

  4. Your thimble is gorgeous. Wish I could sew using one... would save the middle finger getting a big hole every so often!
