Happy Mother's Day!
Here are more flowers.  This time from DS#1 and DIL.
I got something I have wanted for a while in the mail yesterday.  It came from France.  But first I want to show you something that has been on my sewing table for a couple of years.  I found a tutorial for this on the internet and started it.
What the heck is that?  It is the start of a yubinuki.  That is a Japanese thimble.  I didn't get very far.  I could keep going and try to finish it.  A lady in York on the tour last year showed us some yubinukis that she made.  They were kind of expensive so I had to pass.  Then I spotted some on Etsy that were less expensive.  I had an itchy finger that clicked the "Buy" button.  I bought a yubinuki on Etsy from a lady in France.  The package came yesterday.  Inside the package a folded paper crane was included .
And this little box:
This is my new Japanese thimble:

It fits on your finger like this.  I think you wear it on your middle finger.
Isn't it pretty?


  1. That little thimble is beautiful. Happy Mother's Day.

  2. More beautiful flowers.
    The thimble is interesting.
