Joining the yahoo group

I made another sale at Etsy last weekend. This was my second at Etsy and I am really happy about this, not only for the sale, but also for the fact that the customer actually read my blog. When I made my first sale, I was happy, too, because the person who didn't know me at all, whom I didn't know and quite unlikely would ever meet liked my thimble well enough to buy it. But this time it's a little bit different, I cannot explain it well, but I felt, well, connected.

Then she mentioned in the order form that there was a yahoo group for the kind of thimbles I made. It is called "thimble_rings" and I haven't ever joined any groups before I decided to give it a try, like I hadn't ever owned my own blog but I gave it a try and I really like it. I am not sure the correct way to tell you how to find the group but I went to yahoo group page (US) and search it with thimble and rings as key words. You need membership to have a look what the group is doing but the membership is to exclude the spams, well, you cannot complain about that, then. The group is recently formed I was told, and right now there is no specific agenda, but pooling the resources from the members. If you are interested, please join us.

This is the one I made tonight. It makes me think of the sunshine and beachside. What does this inspire you?


  1. It does make me think of the beachside too. Lovely colors. When it is a thimble-ring do people wear them as jewelry or use as a thimble for sewing? I had not seen these until I came across your blog. Congrats on your sale!

    Also I see you have another follower!! Do you make other crafts you can share with us on your blog or tidbits of your life there? I would love to learn more about you.

  2. This is beautiful again. I love those colours. Indeed the seaside. How nice you found a group for thimbles and your specific ring thimbles. Congratulations on selling.

  3. I am the new follower. I create Japanese temari and have tried to make an obi using the thimble ring method. What a disaster! I only hope that now, with a thimble ring before me I can do a better job. Thank you for all the information. The new thimble ring group with yahoo is just a start. Please join us, we will have such a great time.
