See that cute little "chalkboard" design up there? Yes, the one by Hands On Design. Well, I'm attempting to stitch it. I thought to myself, "This will be a quick little stitch to do in between or along with all the other stuff I'm doing." (Namely my own designs.) HA! It uses a slate grey, 30-count linen, 2 over 2. I can't see what I'm stitching AT ALL! I have so far stitched the green line in the middle, and half the S. Can you believe that? I have used my strongest reading glasses, really GOOD light (tried it with the Ott Light, tried it in very good natural light), AND a magnifier hanging around my neck. I STILL can't see to stitch properly!
I must be getting old. No. I must BE old. Someone help! How do I make this stitching go a little easier? Oh, and I've already tried the white cloth / paper underneath, too.
I signed up for an auto-ship program though the good people at Patchwork Rabbit. I would hate to have to UN-sign-up because I can't see. Any suggestions anyone?
I'd like to say "Happy Stitching" but, I'm NOT a happy stitcher at the moment!
