Shedding some light on the matter ......
Last night I hung the quilt on the wall and promised a picture - so here goes.
I also used my new magnifier lamp for the first time since my eye problem - wow what a difference! I could sew without feeling that I was straining my eye - and the large viewing area made the work easy to handle. Not only that but, today, I took the magnifier with the desk clamp to the craft group and it worked a treat!
Talking about the craft group, Wendy popped along to sort out her artisan apron pattern and to cut it out - well the lining first - it needed taking in in parts and lengthening in others - might as well do that to the lining than the outer!
Jean brought her machine with her with the intention of finishing a Christmas present and Carine brought her machine in order to carry on with some splendid sampler blocks. then the electricity went off and we sat for around an hour with a power cut! Ev was more canny - she had charged her light box and so could do some tracery of patterns! Carine "sweetened" our trials by bringing her daughters birthday cake. well - we just had to help her now didn't we?
Tonight? Well some more embroidery of course - now that I have regained my ability to see the work!! It feeds my soul!
