Save! Our! Thimble!

I just got this urgent message from June Dudley at Quiltmaker Magazine  asking me to spread the word ----

Monopoly ((The Game)) has put our favorite icon, the humble silver thimble –at risk!

OH. NO!

It was always my favorite game piece…even through it was NEVER going to ever fit any one of my fingers – EVER.

HA!! I saw that on the news yesterday morning. They DID say the iron was in the lead to be evicted from future game sets. That'd be OK with me!!

Looks like the shoe is losing now; I voted in the thimble, too! Sewists, UNITE!

I went to vote earlier when I saw the post from another quilting group and you have to also vote for the one you want to replace which ever one gets voted out... which is ok, except there wasn't a single one that I would want to win. I liked all the ones they have now, well most of them... lol

I don't remember the wheelbarrow or the ship. If I was on facebook, I'd definitely want to add the kitty!

I always picked the shoe as a kid, for some odd reason.
