The comments on the hand quilting question & answer post were really thought provoking!
For instance, many had questions on thimbles.
Like so many others you are a daily must for me. It keeps me inspired and sometimes even motivated ;)! You have inspired me to get out my antique quilt tops (put together with hand embroidered blocks my great grandmother did) and get to hand quilting them. I haven't hand quilted since my mother passed away. It was always something we did together around a big frame.
I am not sure my stitches will look so great, I hope it is like riding a bicycle! I would be interested in the thimble question. I know you have talked about thimbles before. I really struggle with something on my finger, but oh the pain if you don't. I would like to get back to doing some hand applique too. Thanks Bonnie for your constant inspiration and generous sharing!
I know that thimbles are a very personal thing, and what works for one will not work for someone else, so I was thinking we could do a Linky Party where those who DO use a thimble could write a post about their favorite one or ones, show some pictures, and we’d have lots of resources right there at our thimble-tips!
Would there be interest in participating in a Thimbles Up Linky Day? If you have a blog, a favorite thimble, and can write a post on it and are interested in linking up, would you leave me a comment below. If there isn’t any interest, I’ll just write a post on my own, but I thought a Linky that shows a TON of different thimble options would be of interest to many. Sound Good? If you have a fun thimble collection, this would be a great place to link it too! If your thimble has a neat story – even better.
Okay, let me know below! I was thinking we could do this on MONDAY, and that would give everyone a few days to plan their write-ups. If you are following along with Judy L’s Design Wall Mondays --- I thought doing this also on Monday would give you the chance to include the info in your same post, saving you some time --- and letting you link up on two places the same day to make it easy on you.
