Such a clever hint

This super clever idea comes from fabulous Rosalie Quinlan.  On a stay in hospital, part of Rosie's arm was wrapped in a cohesive bandage.  Being a super clever cookie she thought that it would make a brilliant alternative to a thimble for protecting a finger from needle punctures. 

Just cut off a strip along the length of the roll and wrap it around your finger.  It will adhere to itself, Don't you just hate that popping sound as the eye end of the needle penetrates your flesh?  Well with Rosie's tip and a roll of cohesive bandage that will never happen again.
Gail B has it for sale for $7.50 a roll in a range of half a dozen vibrant colours.  They do mail order too.
Tonight is

Every now and again a little creature comes along to steal your heart.  Mine was stolen last night when I was looking for something fabulous to share.
He is a little flying squirrel and I want him to come and live at my house.  Guess I'll just have to make one and it will be easy as there is a wonderful tutorial HERE at Wild Olive.  He is shared by guest blogger, Abby Glassenberg, from While She Naps.  Enormous thanks to Abby and Mollie.
Have the best Friday ever
Love

  7. ooh that squirrel is sooooo cute! He might just have to join me to at the next FNSI perhaps??? (Thanks for the plug, gorgeous!πŸ‘). And what a great idea with the cohesive tape....having big fingers, thimbles never feel right. Big sugary hugs and let's get stitching! Xxx
