Tiger Tape Revisited

submitted by Suzanne Sandoval
from Threads #104

For a tiny ruler I can't lose, I put a 1/2-inch piece of Tiger Tape on my left thumbnail (I'm right-handed). Then when I'm hand-stitching or hand-embroidering, the way I hold my thumb allows me to gauge stitches quickly and effortlessly. Now my stitches have even depth and width, and for me, that's important.
