No more burnt fingers! Love these Dritz Thermal Thimbles!

I'll be honest, I'm not one for trying new tools out;  I just make do with what I have usually.  But I made a point to buy Dritz Thermal Thimbles because I often burn my fingers while ironing, and I thought I might as well  give these a shot.  This past weekend I was working on a little project and the piecing was very small, so I was so excited to try these thimbles out!  And oh my goodness, they are awesome!  My fingers were practically touching the iron and I didn't get burnt at all!

Bottle-cap Pincushion

Look at this darling little bottle-cap pincushion from Super-cute Pincusions. It is SO cute and very fun to make!  I am a lover of wools so this project is made of wool. I love to embellish and was attracted to the embroidery stitches that adorned the minute pincushion. It has quite a history too!

Santa Stitchery

When the book Stitch it for Christmas by Lynette Anderson came in, I volunteered to make the Santa Stitchery.  So, during a long, sunny weekend this summer at the beach, I was stitching away on Santa!  I finished the stitchery during the weekend, and then finished the project when I got back home.  I had a grand time doing this project; it’s just a perfect fit for the Wire Table Stand, and the Tree ...
