Quilt With Us

I went to my aunt & uncle's estate auction on Saturday and bought a small box of miscellaneous sewing items - mainly for the two brand new rotary cutters (still in the packages).  But when I got it home, I found my aunt's raised-edge, quilting thimble.  Not only does it hold sentimental value, but it fits me perfectly.  It was a happy surprise.

I carry my mom's thimble with me in my purse.

Raised edge thimbles are the best! Finding one as hidden treasure is even better.

It was meant to be. I'm sure you will think of your aunt whenever you use it.
