What’s Lost is Found

I published the last entry – about my lost thimble, the thimble I have looked for over three weeks now – and I went to lunch. I have a project I have been putting off; I need to stitch down a binding on a quilt, but without my silver thimble, I didn’t want to do it. I have other thimbles. My finger loves my little silver thimble.

It’s down to the wire. I need to get started, no more putting it off. I have a deadline, tomorrow, and I need to start NOW to be finished for tomorrow.

Oops – no needles, but I know where they are. They are in my sewing kit. I pull out my sewing kit – and there it is. My thimble.

What’s lost is found. Thanks be to God. And here is what I can’t figure out. I looked in this little sewing kit several times. It was one of the logical places. I felt it, for the unmistakeable shape of the thimble, I could swear it wasn’t there, but I would be wrong.

It’s a GREAT day. My little thimble is found!

  1. It’s a lovely little thing.

  2. Thank you, Caitlin. I photographed it because if I had to describe it, I would have described it wrongly. It’s the strength, the weight, and the fit on my finger, as well as it’s beauty.

    I like your intelligent and articulate blog.
