so I tear up duct tape – yes, the gray super sticky stuff – it about 1/2′ square pieces and layer it in the appropriate spot on my finger with a larger strip over the whole thing to hold in place. I can sew and sew without poking my finger… and when it happens, remove the duct tape and may a new “thimble”.
With the holiday weekend here, we are going wild and will be getting together on Monday to work on/finish the last of the Yarnell quilts. I always look forward to seeing everyone and catching up on the news… oh, yeah… and getting some sewing done.
It looks like we are going to have 15 quilts to deliver to elderly Yarnell wildfire victims in mid-October. This has been such a rewarding project in so very many ways. I feel so blessed to have been a part of a group that provides so much service to those in need. Stay tuned for photos of the quilts!
We call it a “sew-in”… and we gets tons of sewing done… but the benefis of girls getting together to sew is more than just sewing. We laugh, we talk, we share ideas, we share stories, we support each other through challenges, and we work together with a common purpose. It seems there isn’t anything that can replicate the bonding that goes on over fabric and needle.
Thank you my sewing friends.
We are currently working on quilts (oversized lap quilt or larger) to be hand delivered to elderly victims of the Yarnell Wildfires. We intend to hand deliver the quilts late September or early October before the weather turns chilly.
We welcome any gifts of quilts, fabric, supplies, or time for this project.
