A Sad Discovery

So last night I picked up Brotherly Love, which I am stitching on 28ct evenweave - and I found that I could not see to stitch. My eyes nor my little light are not good enough to see with. Sigh. I will be purchasing an OTT LIGHT sometime soon, I can see that!

So I went looking for something else to do, and found a birth announcement that I started for Madi last summer, called "Sophie."

Here is where I am at this point, after stitching some last night.

There is a "sister" piece called "Deep Blue Sea" which I will be doing for Marleigh as well.

I also wanted to share the special one for Mindy, mom's nurse aide friend. The multicolored pink frame/border around is done in variegated tapestry yarn rather than regular floss. It is coming out very pretty, but I have to be careful to stitch so that the colors come out in "blocks" of color. The hearts are done in regular floss, by the way.

Today I will be spending quality time with DDIL's quilt, especially since today is her birthday.

Off I go, to quilt a while. I will post a picture of it later.


  1. Ahhh...young eyes are a treasure we take for granted. I have to have my light & my gramma glasses to stitch and I don't think I'm that old! LOL Good work so far anyway. Go for the 40 or 50 % off at Joanns ot Michaels for the lights/

  2. Looks like some nice projects! I use 2.75 glasses now and have used an Ott light for years. Couldn't go without either!
