My mother gave me this thimble on my 16th birthday, 1968. A little note folded in the lid of its hinged leather box reads, “This solid gold thimble belonged to Annie’s [my maternal grandmother’s] most precious Aunt May: Mary Corinthia Harwood.”

She must have had tiny hands. Her thimble only fits my baby finger. I wish I’d known her. Maybe that’s why I love handwork so much, sitting for hours making teensie stitches. It feels like Great Aunt May sits beside me.
