A lady at a quilt retreat told me once the best tool in her embroidery box was a bottle of Neosporin. Weird, right?
Ever notice on certain days (cold weather or constantly washing hands after eating Popsicles) that your hands are particularly dry and/or sensitive? Days like that, as you embroider or hand quilt, your fingertips are sore, stabbed, bleeding? Dab some Neosporin on them and protect with a band-aid. Next morning, your little fingertips will be supple and new.
I was excited today to see Neosporin-treated band-aids on my drugstore shelf.
