My Grandmother gave me a silver thimble, and I used to keep it in my jewelry box - I thought. I went looking for it and for weeks couldn't find it. I read this in Fate magazine: take a drinking glass out of your cupboard and turn in UPSIDE down on the counter (or someplace safe that no one will put it back in the sink) And say to yourself what item you want found. Well I tried it, and put the glass in my sewing room. A couple of days later I went in the room to get my scissors and I glanced over to the glass and thought Oh yeah the glass....and not only was my thimble on the table by my machine there was an extra thimble there! I got so excited!! It would be interesting to see if it works for others too! You have to be genuine about it though. Let me know if it works!
