One thing I didn't think of . . .

I have a thimble!

Actually, I have two!!

Did you know they sell different sizes of thimbles??  I didn't!  They had medium and grande at the store I went to, and since you couldn't try them on due to the way they were packaged I bought one of each (they were only $1.17 each).  I was so excited to get home and try one out . . . but one thing I didn't think of was that thimbles don't work that great when you have long nails.  Hmm.

I'm not planning to cut my nails any time soon, so now I'm not sure what I'll do.  I did get a "rubber finger" from our Finance Department at work (you use it to flip through papers quickly) so I'll try that, otherwise I guess my finger will just have to get used to lots of needle pricks.

I have finished sewing all of my fabric banners, here's a look at my WIP (work in progress) box once I had them done.

I'm going to retake some of the photos for my Oh Boy mini album now that I've revised some of the embellishments that come with the kit.  Then on to the next project!

Look at all your banners -- how fun! I love your WIP box... and that pin cushion is adorable!

Thanks Andrea! The pin cushion came from an Etsy shop called Chen and Dot (www.chetanddot.etsy.com). There are lots of cute things in her shop!
