While sifting thru the stuff in my sewing room I rediscovered my wonderful little steel, leather and velcro thimble. Last Sunday I sliced the tip of my ring finger thru to the bone almost and managed to keep it patched up pretty well so that the tip has knitted itself back together. But it still almost brings me to my knees when I thump it on something----------I've discovered that I'm extremely uncordinatd. The steel tip that is the thimble part is a life saver for saving my finger from thumping. Thank you, God.
