My middle finger has a hole in the nail and is crying loudly "PLEASE GET THE INTERNET CONNECTIONS BACK!!!!"
I have tried a metal thimble but that only serves to avoid using that finger entirely (making my index finger complain ... with holes in the pad)
The leather thimble works OK but it falls off between every stitch.
The rubber thimble is most comfortable but it is made more for gripping the needle than protecting the finger. At any rate, without much reliable connectivity, a lot of the border is getting finished.
I am on the third border now and about to mark the last side in case I have some extra time before choir tonight.
I will probably just use the little rubber thimble. Once the needle pokes through the nail and makes a hole, the needle seems to find that spot over and over again. It not only un-threads the needle in the process but it really hurts. (and no bleeding allowed on the quilt so delays the progress)
I will get a daughter-fix.
See an art show.
And, I am already enjoying these fox-gloves that were given to me for mother's day a number of years ago by my granddaughter.
The telephone was re-connected last Friday.
So far, two calls from my daughter and one that didn't speak English.
Next month sometime, the internet may return. It will be nice to do my browsing on my own time rather than rush to the laptop when I hear the neighbor's door close. Hope to see you all soon.
