There is nothing more relaxing than sitting with my "darling" each night stitching away. I have a little basket which sits beside me and always has stitcheries waiting to be stitched. Here is my "Spring Garden" stitchering featuring Chester which is all finished. I now have to decide what I am going to make it into - I am thinking a cushion would be nice - What do you think?
In my basket are the lovely stitcheries that my friend Vicki recently designed. They are a lovely flowing stitchery and look great done in variegated threads.
When I stitch I always seem to bend my needles - This is just one out of my pin cushion. I think that it is my binding needle but is now just so comfortable that I don't have the heart to throw it out. Do you bend your needles when you stitch?
I also wanted to ask what sort of lighting you use of a night to stitch. I am looking for a new light. I like the sounds of this one - Does anyone out there have one of these? I am starting to have trouble with my eyes so I think that I need the magnifier.
