I collect them! Turns out I have 77. Most I've acquired in travels, makes them more fun. Others from friends or family who travel and remember I collect and 2 as part of exchanges.
I purchased my very first thimble in 1990 in Germany. I just washed all 77! Talk about dishpan hands. I seem to have more from abroad than the US. I forget alot of times to pick one up in our travels. I'm sure I will be collecting a few this summer.

Needles and things

How many needles does a girl need? I took Mayte's advice. After finishing Mary Wigham I have picked up this WIP, Vierlanden Anna sampler. I am also per Mayte's advice :-) picking out a new project to throw into a rotation.
Thanks to the one color DMC 816, I have about 8 needles pre-threaded.Next week is spring break. Guess what I will be doing?:-)

Do I pick up a WIP more like UFO or do I start something new? Hmmm......

A Finish!!

My Mary Wigham is complete! I have elected to leave out the initials. So for now unless I change my mind prior to framing, she is complete!

Little Bit of Mary

Just a little bit left to stitch along with the initials throughout the piece and I will be done with Mary! Have a couple of projects on the back burner that I cannot wait to get to!
