I forgot to post the “light” part in yesterday’s title. Seems forgetting things has become a regular part of my life. Sometimes I worry that it is an indication of what might come, but then other times, it seems reasonable to chalk it up to a busy life and simply getting older. Anyway…
I am working on Carolyn’s lovely blue and white quilt. The white corner triangles have a feather with pebble spine. I probably shouldn’t have used white thread on white fabric, but I did. I rely on natural light to see the stitching but when you have 3 rainy days in a row, there is no light. So I walked around the house and saw a natural light floor lamp that came with my sewing machine. I turn the head so the light hits sideways, creating the shadow needed to see the stitches. Works pretty well. Wish it was still better, but I think that’s as good as it is going to get.
Here’s a picture of the setup.
I love quilts that are basically 2 colors with high contrast.
Thanks for stopping by.
