Miserable vs. Rewarding

Last night I sat down to start the first few stitches of my quilt and discovered that I had lost my thimble! A thimble is very important piece of equipment for quilting and I just could not start without one. My loving husband, floored that I did not have a spare, jokingly asked if he could make me one out of Duck Tape. His face registered surprise when I immediately took him up on the offer. He had me run and find a button to give it some strength in the end and set to work. It worked great! I went through a couple of them, and each new one got better and better. I really was amazed, the duck tape thimble worked well and was really comfortable. See how resourceful you can get when you really want to quilt!


  1. I like the home-made thimble...hopefuly we find yours?!

  2. You are so funny! Can't wait to see the finished product!

  3. Wow! You CAN make anything out of duck tape! Great job Aric!
