Stitching is going well, especially since I got the sign put back in! The back-stitching is really bringing out the detail of the beards on the Santas. I don't know how well you can see it but I have only three left and the roly-poly yellow one is nearly finished. Hopefully, I can finish it all and sew it all together this weekend! Then it will be on to other things until the fabric comes in.
I added a new "tool" to the stitching table today. A very bright, led, magnifying lamp! I sometimes have trouble seeing the pattern and the piece as the part of the studio where I have that table is not very well lit. Then there are the aging eyes to deal with, more light is always better. Joann's had a "Doorbuster" sale on these so it was very reasonable! I'd have had to save my pennies to get it otherwise! It can be either a table lamp or a floor lamp, right now I have it as a floor lamp. I think it will be a great addition and not just for stitching but for anything small or anything on black!
