I must say first off - I love my new magnifying light. I don't know what I have done all these years without it! I have been stitching on 40 ct. like it's 32. This is the best present to myself ever! :) Anyway, enough about that. I have been stitching "Christmas Tea" by Plum Street Samplers. I'm really enjoying it! I just have to finish the lettering and some snowflakes and I'll be done. It's taken much less time then I thought it would. I think it's mainly because of the light! :)
I decided to take Carol's advice about pulling a thread for a guide while sewing. So I got out my Stacy Nash Pillow to experiment on. I think it turned out pretty cute. It's not perfect, but it's better, which is progress for me.
