It's so thimble

My grandmas, Hansen and Jones, could sew. My Mom can sew. She was one of the top in the state of NJ in high school. I learned as an adult and I am still elarning. I am finally learning how to use a thumble. such a simple little accessory but not as easy to use as it appears. I finished a quilt ssquare for Maddie today. She calls it Miami the Unicorn because it's "supposed" to be the colors of the Miami Dolphins. I don't have the heart to tell her it's actually the colors of the Chargers (I think). It could be the Oilers but I am no football aficianado. Here is the before and after photos of it. It is hard to tell with a cell camera but the first photo is how the unicorn looks before the applique.
Here is the before. No applique.

Here it is finished, with applique!! I will have to start using my regular camera because you can't see all the detail on the finished square.

I used the thimble to embroider the unicorn's eye. I am thankful that my grandmas and my mom enjoyed sewing as much as they did. I really enjoy it too. I am enjoying finally getting on the stick and working on our childrens' quilt squares, too.
