First let me show you the two flowers added to my GFG quilt.
Pink and Green!
Right there next to my blue dotted flower from last week.
That's two completed rows now!

Back in April, my search for a suitable thimble
lead to The Great Thimble Debate.
That was Round 1 and I'd settled on this one:
But I wasn't completely satisfied and based on
commenters suggestions ended up trying a few more.
Pros: Disposable, non-bulky, similar to Round 1's winner
Cons: plastic surface is too smooth, needle slides off
Pros: snug (not tight) non-slip, comfy fit, no sweaty fingers, metal tip
Cons: Slightly bulkier than adhesive disks
Pros: comfortable leather grip, lets finger breathe
Cons: Absolutely would not stay in place.
(package claimed it was adjustable but no
instructions on how to adjust it)
Yep, this is the one I finally chose. Once I got used to the bulkiness,
it was SO comfortable and SO functional, now I don't even realize
I'm wearing it. Honesly, I almost ranked it a tie with the leather disks
from Round 1, and may end up switching off, depending on the project.
But for now, I'm hooked...thanks to Valentina at Valentina's Corner
for the suggestion and also to Linda at Stray Stitches for
suggesting the little leather discs from Round 1.
My flower garden is much more manageable now!!
I'm on a roll...
