Over the years since a friend gave me this little tool I have not actually used it much. But, tonight it has been my new buddy:-)
My friend's husband was very keen on wood turning and he made these beautiful little wooden handles poked a tapestry needle into it (eye portion in the wood) and they are the most fantastic 'unpicking assistants'. Yes! I have been reverse stitching tonight so I am off to do the dinner dishes and hope to recover my stitching momentum during that break. Wish me luck. This is the base of the thimblepod.
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
