I took "Patchwork" with me to Sisters yesterday and once I got all my official work done, tried to get in a few stitches. Bad idea! It was a very dark and gloomy day in Pr. Rupert yesterday and the light over my desk is NOT a good. And Patchwork is being stitched on grey, 32 ct fabric and I just about went crazy - I could not see the threads properly and I was pulling out and redoing at least 3 stitches for every 5. Thank goodness I'm doing back stitch so it's fairly simple to fix, but I finally had to throw up and hands and quit. Looks like I'll have to start carrying my OTT light with me when I take my stitching.
Roll on brighter days that also start earlier!!
