When i was 15, my grandmother, who was an antiques dealer, gave me this silver thimble. At the time I didn’t think much of it, and as years have past I would wonder why a thimble would have to be fancy anyways. I kept it, but since I always dreaded hand sewing never really used it much.

Now when i’m caught in the ebroidery addiction, I’ve come to realize how much nicer this thimble is compared to the cheap ones I have plenty of. It’s feels much better on my finger, I now use it every sewing day and get to think of Grandma Anna-Lisa as a bonus.

  2. I think objects that are used regularly are imbibed with their owners.. what a beautiful object to remember her by.
