I have had this on my to do list for a long time - cleaning the thimble display and thimbles.
Today was the day.
DH took the shelf down from the wall and all that was in it was picked out.
This is an antique printers drawer and I had to be careful not to make it wet - if not, I could have rinsed it in the garden with the hose. Very tempting ;-)
Some knick knack without sentimental value got sorted out and tossed, and the rest went back on the shelf.
Thimble count is 156 on the shelf + one on my mobile phone :-)
Nothing is like a serving of strawberries, sugar and cream on a warm day :-)
