After many years hand quilting my fingers are mis,shapen . The thimble finger is very uncomfortable and seems to be ; infected , at present .I think it is because I use a metal thimble .
My sister has advised me to try a hot bread poultice on it . She explained how to go about the proceedure . I shall try this.. Soak bread in hot water and apply it to the infection . Perhaps she had this concoction out of her witches spells book. I wonder how bad it has to get before I have to boil 3 spiders and bathe the finger in the resulting tincture , while doing a bit of sonorous chanting .
