I’ve been in a cross stitching mood lately. I finished this….
I started this piece in the spring. I had a little bit done, summer hit and it got left. I didn’t touch cross stitch all summer.
Then last Sunday I needed a little brain rot time so I turned on Acorn TV and watched and stitched for most of the afternoon. I ended up finishing my piece.
Right away I started this….
You can’t see what the saying is very well. Here’s a close up.
I love the saying.
You might remember that I’m a HUGE Lizzie Kate fan (designer of what I’m stitching). Last spring I was so sad when I found out that she was retiring. I’m happy to find out that her items will still be available and she will be releasing a design from time to time but a limited amount.
Through all that I also learned that one of the on line shops was clearancing out her stuff and everything was HALF PRICE!!
I admit…I ordered. I ordered several designs. Good thing I’m on a fabric diet. Oh my.
In light of my “cross stitch kick” I was wondering if anyone knows of a good portable light for cross stitching. Hotels are notorious for poor lighting. I was hoping I could find a nice portable light to take with me.
Mayo clinic called me and I have appointments scheduled coming up.
November 13th is blood work and an ultra sound of my neck. Then the 14th we see the doctor. Because of the way the appointments are scheduled, it’s easier for us to go up and stay overnight. (For those of you who missed the post, my thyroid cancer has returned and I was sent on to the Mayo Clinic. Find that post here if you missed it.)
I thought having a light that was portable would be great. A good book lamp might do the trick. I don’t know. I was hoping one of you had a suggestion.
I am also busy getting together some projects together that are “car friendly”. Removing papers from string blocks is perfect.
I might get to these before then, but that’s where my brain is…thinking about things I can do traveling and then recouping should they have to do surgery again. I so hate wasted time!!
Any suggestions of a good portable light to use when cross stitching would be grand. If it was battery operated, that would be even better.
