The HD3QBEM and I don't have icecream in the freezer. In fact when we do occasionally eat icecream we indulge in highly expensive cones from Kapiti Icecream - like these ones here. They taste great and there are no leftovers for further temptation!
So now I am nearing the construction phase of the thimblepod I need icecream. Technically, I need the lids of icecream containers. Today at work I asked some of my colleagues who look as if they might eat more icecream than I, whether they could spare lids from their containers. Some looked sideways at me, others laughed out loud, some selfishly said they keep their containers :-( But one kind person gave me this, asking "what do you want them for?"
So now I can press on with the construction. Icecream container lids form the perfect stiffening for the sides of thimblepods. Not too stiff, not too soft. Just Right!
I have just recently retired from work. I love to 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.
