To thimble or not to thimble?
Just sitting here getting a bit bored with stitching on binding (yes, the cat has moved from the quilt and I am up to the binding stage). I calculated I have 360 inches (or 900cm) worth of binding to sew on in the next 2 days so I figured that using a thimble might be a good idea to save my finger pads? However, inspite of owning one for many years, I've never really used one!!!
I feel all thumbs!!
Is anyone out there a proficient thimble user...do I just keep my thimbled finger tucked out of the way until I need to use it to push the needle through?? Any thoughts...?
