The Perils of Stitching in Bad Light
As I have previously mentioned, Needle Nicely is stitching three belt canvases for a customer. I haven't been able to do much stitching at the shop, so I brought one home. I slowly discovered that the floor lamp beside me wasn't up to the task of lighting my work. I've never done so many straight up or across stitches in my life! And, I managed to use my left thumb as a pin cushion.
Thank goodness, a solution was not far away. It's a bit cumbersome, but I folded the belt with a clothes pin and then clamped my Jansjo lamp onto the bottom left edge. Works like a dream! Though it isn't exactly the perfect stitching motion!
