Weather has been up and down. Some days really hot and muggy, and then suddenly turning really cool with grey skies and rain. I must say, I prefer the latter, as when it’s too hot I just don’t know what to do with myself and stitching really slows down because of sweaty hands.
Other news . . . with my newly discovered thimble collection hobby, I have been trying to read up and document myself a little on the history of thimbles. There doesn’t seem to be much info out there, and not many books on the subject. However, I came across a couple of second-hand books on amazon’s market place and this morning I received one of the books I ordered. “Book” is rather a grand name as it’s only a very slim 32 pages. “Thimbles” by Eleanor Johnson, published in 1982, so it’s seen better days.
Photos inside are all in black and white (which is a shame) BUT nonetheless, it’s a handy little source of information and since it only cost me 25 centimes, who am I to complain?
