Pretty Thimbles of the sort on the fabric

This small collection of thimbles bears some resemblance to the sorts of thimbles on the fabric, but they don't translate exactly into design.

The collection of thimbles below includes silver and gold thimbles made in the U.S., England and Germany.  As you can see, several have guilloche enamel bands (pink, blue, dark blue with a touch of orange, yellow.

I gathered together a few of the tools and below is a photo of the less common ones, yes the real tools that I am convinced went into the design of the fabric.

The Story of the Thimbles and Needlework Tools Bag

Annette found a remnant of this fabric from years ago and it has a story to it. When I first saw it all those years ago, I thought those are my tools!!

I mean, they could be anybody's except for the stiletto on the upper right, the one with the basket of fruit is soooo rare! It is Dieppe carved ivory and as many collections as I have seen, I have not seen another.

Combined with my crooked scissors, I think they are my tools. I think the fabric company used my Needlework Tools Book photos and designed their fabric.

That is fine with me, I loved having a bag made out of the fabric for all those years.

Then Annette found a remnant and combined it with the thimbles fabric and I have another to enjoy all over again.

Annette first sold these in 2017 and she has only three for this sale.
