Sore thumb!


Keeping me out of mischief in the evenings are the projects I bought for Mother's Day this year (and yes - I realise it's not until March!). These great Pinflair eggs remind me so much of the Faberge eggs when they are finished and they are really easy to do - just fiddly and time consuming ........ oh and don't forget the sore thumb from pushing in all those pins! I tried wearing a thimble but I just couldn't work with it and still pick up all the fiddly bits. This isn't made any easier by my acrylics either!

I made this one for my MIL and am halfway through a different one for my mum. I'll share a piccy when I get it finished (if my thumbs last that long!).

Oh well done, they are far too fiddly for me, plus I don't think I'd have the patience so well done.

Healing thoughts for your thumb
