Thank you for coming back to my blog after so long a leave (again). I plan to update my blog at least once a month but as you see it has been almost 6 months since my last post and I apologize for it.
It looks like some people mentioned me somewhere on the web and my blog and my Etsy shop have been getting a big attention recently. I made a big sale (for me) on "Your First Japanese Silk Thimble Making Kit", a trial kit for the people who is new to thimble making. Unfortunately I cannot sell the kit to the residents of EU countries because of EU customs requirement, Etsy billing system, and Japan Post's shipping system. In addition to it, I can only ship via surface mail, which takes 2-3 months without tracking and because of that I suppose some people may have given up the thimble making and that thought makes me sad as it's not very difficult to make your own thimbles, though it requires a little getting used to it.
I have posted several how-to on this blog and here is links to these posts:
how to stitch - the design I made in this post is not the basic one but you can see step by step photos of how to make stitches here.
how to stitch the basic bi-coloured scales design - design interpretation
I hope above posts will help you start thimble making and if you have questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Let me wish you happy stitching!
