I dug out an old box of rubber finger tips, you know the kind, like secretaries use when counting a million pages of something?
I used to use them to control my fabric sandwhich when I would machine quilt
I am using them on the hand that stabilizes, holds and turns my little felted pieces.
They do protect against the little minor pokes and jabs.
Fortunetly I haven't had a major kamikaze needle attacks so I don't know how well it would protect against that. At least I haven't repeated the one from last summer where I went in one side of the nail bed and came out the other, missing the bone altogether. :dance:
Just thought someone would like to now.....
Great idea..I even have some of those things somewhere..will look for them tomorrow in daylight. I use a spare needle to hold the wool I am working on for the little stuff which helps keep my fingers out of the way, but for the larger stuff that doesn't work so well... Great tip!!!
Good point Judi,
and the other thing I find is that I mind the minor pokes less.....just stop to be sure I'm not making a mess. I don't say ouch any more because the hubs always wants to check my blood sugar.....sometimes he can be a mother hen! gotta love him though
I am very excited to see what Erin and her hubby are creating! Erin did you know that Louise and her hubby are a bear creating duo too?
