If you look really closely at the tip you can see that the needle threader slides out. It’s handy I used it as I worked on a customer quilt a while back and while I have no problems threading a needle, this is still a handy dandy feature.
Now for the blogger help:
Linda Poole is currently writing an article and looking for thimble stories. Here’s a link to her website for the details. I’ll be sending her these photos with a short story as to how this thimble came to be mine. Linda also has a favorite feature of mine: the color fix. She finds fun and unusual color pictures for inspiration and posts them regularly on her blog. I love them as my mind starts thinking how can I make this or that photo into a quilt. Love it! There is one photo on the post right now that I’m giving serious consideration to…though I’m going to have to collect a huge amount of thread to accomplish this!
