When you do embroidery, you got a lot of short floss, not long enough to start stitching with it but long enough that you cannot throw it away. When you make thimbles, the same happens and I have stashed these threads in a small box and it got nearly full. I thought it was about time to do something about it otherwise there wouldn't be a point to collect all those threads in the first place.
I dumped the accumulated threads on the table and sorted them by colours; blue & green & purple, brown family, red & pink & orange, yellow & white and I made this thimble from red & pink & orange pile. I aimed at the variegated thread effect so the design had to be simple. I firstly thought about the simple stripe like this but because I had to change threads so much I decided against it. I does look as if I used variegated thread, doesn't it?
