240 Thimbles



Or approximately 240. Those things have so much static in them when they come off the cutter that they are hard to count.

I'm done cutting on these until I start sewing them together and figure out how many more I need.

Of course, I know I will have to replace the bottom one that Penny decided she would do a taste test on........

...... I love my dog!

I have a big stack of these also. Mine are all Kaffe prints. I want to find time to play with them. I am looking forward to seeing what you do with yours.

You mean she only ate one:) I call Rusty my "little goat". He hasn't eaten my fabric, but that may be a way to bust some stash. We went to a Daschund festival yesterday. I do plan to blog about it. It was so much fun seeing all the doxies:)

I love that they're as big as her head!!

She is so cute!!! Does she daintly cover herself up with quilts? Max does it and it is the funniest thing considering how he treats his 'babies!' He will very gently lift a quilt or fabric or whatever with just the edges of his teeth and arrange it over him! lol Maybe I need a video of it, but I can never catch him...

Just got to love your inspector!

When I saw your post title, I was thinking thimbles that go on your finger. Surprise! All those 30's fabrics will make a good quilt.
And I don't think anyone would ever guess that you love your dog. LOL! A good companion for sure.

LOL well, they look like sherbet, although I'm sure the taste surprised her! :-) Have fun sewing thimbles!

What a happy looking stack of thimbles. It does look good enough to eat. Have you seen the new 3.5 inch thimbles that are coming out next month? Can't wait to get some.

I love the "goat" comment! Sophie Mae says to tell Penny that quilt fabric is good fiber for the diet!

I love your dog, too! That really says a lot coming from a woman with a house full of cats! :-)

Carol said...

What a wonderful stack of thimbles...and Penny, well you know I think she's beyond wonderful! She couldn't be any cuter! What would you ever do without her help? OL!

Judy said...

So glad to hear you're liking your Go cutter. I got mine last week but haven't put it to the test yet. I am sure I will love evenly cut fabric for a change though! Penny is so adorable.

Oh be so careful. Eating fabric can be fatal for a doggie. That was Kipper's cause of death. I never knew. Too late for me.

Adorable fabrics! Cute doggie, too!!

Heeeheee, it could have been Lilly, my niece-dog (who's happily snoring next to me on my chair in front of the computer).
I love those tumblers and can't wait to see them sewn together...it will make a wonderful quilt!

I use spray static guard on my cutting mat for the Go and no static!
