The second day at the quilt show yielded a fourth thimble to try, and so far so good. My hand feels clumsier with a thimble, certainly at first, but then it became rather convenient to give my crowbar needle (I prefer larger to dainty - I don't have dainty hands) a shove with the coin bit. I guess it's like a lot of things, give it some time and practice. But my finger was very grateful to have avoided multiple stabbings. The structure of this thimble seems to suit how I've been sewing, so I shall persist.
If this doesn't work, I've had some other suggestions to try - it's good to know it's not this or nothing.
Sometimes a photo a day, to make me look more closely and see what is around me to be considered and captured, using the immediacy of digital photography. And possibly the odd rant, from time to time. Things made, found, discovered. A cornucopia. On the One Vivid Leaf blog, crochet!
