Et voila!

Tonight the thimblepod is finished.   Complete, but totally useless as a container for a thimble.
I collected up all the thimbles we have in the house and yet there is room for more!
Left to right these are Royal Albert from Windsor(courtesy of Niece Number One), Sterling Silver Dorcas thimble (courtesy of Old Gran =  great grandmother), silver plate thimble from my LNS, two Indian brass thimbles (source unknown).  Five of them but they still rattle around in my thimblepod which if I had stitched over one as directed would have housed one only!
However, there is space in my cabinet for this and I am satisfied - so what,  if it is a mammoth thimblepod.   I should just rename it....but as what??

  4. It is beautiful anyway. I agree with Anna, it would make a lovely coin purse.
