Process Pledge: the gift

Keeping busy!

Still working on the coat muslin but taking a break to get back on that gift for my Sister-in-law.  It is taking an age because I have to work under this…

the-gift

I do it because if I don’t my eyes go fuzzy in the middle of my vision and then I can’t see much at all for an hour.  So as it goes, I work for an hour (the most I can do even with the ring light) and then go on to something that doesn’t require fine vision.  It’s doable and I still get to have fun working!

❤ ❤ ❤ I will get this done Kathee!  ❤ ❤ ❤

What?  You want to see more?  Sorry, gonna have to wait till it’s done and received on the other end.   Don’t want to give it all away too soon.  😉

    You are working on it, making progress. I applaud your efforts! I haven’t done needlework in a long while, but I did buy a small kit, as I do miss it. Maybe I’ll get around to that if I follow your example and just keep plugging.

    I have a ring light too. It’s necessary for many things but mostly (I know, it’s weird), getting splinters out of my fingers! ha ha! That is an interesting photograph by the way… I LIKE it!! 🙂

      Lori, I use it for that too! It is impossible to hold a tweezers or needle and a magnifier to do that job without the ring light.

      I was worried the photo would be boring because it doesn’t show much, but didn’t want to give the theme away in case Kathee came to read this post. I’m glad to hear that you liked it! 🙂

    Even with my “new eyes” I find really fine needlework tough. I’ve never used one of those ring lights, but it looks like it would be great. If I ever get involved in serious needlework again, I might get one. In the meantime, I’ll just sit around and admire your work, and cheer you on!

    • Lynda says:

      Linda, really fine needlework is now out of my league. This is a buttonhole stitch around felted wool which is done with a needle about the size of a finishing nail… easy! I think you could do it if you wanted to. 🙂 Thanks for the cheers! I need to get this done. Oh yes, and Lori mentioned in her comment that it is also handy for splinter removal. I have used mine for that purpose as well. Do you ever get splinters in your line of work?

    I wasn’t sure what to say since this is a surprise! So I haven’t said anything until now. I haven’t been able to do any needlework since my stroke in June 2000, so this is a real treat. You are a real sweetheart, Lynda.

    • Lynda says:

      Kathee, I do hope you will like it when I finish. BTW, since you have posted, do you want a pillow or a banner? It can be either at this point. Just let me know! ❤

So how about that? Go on; say something!
