At our last Twin Cities Tatters gathering, we got to chatting about various lighting and magnifiers. I've tried the lighted magnifying glass around the neck, but it always slips. Recently, I've been thinking maybe I need a new bifocal Rx, but really I think it boils down to the lighting in my living room. It doesn't seem like it should be this tough to figure out why I can't stay focused very long, but so many things can affect productivity!
Another tatter had magnifiers that clip on to your glasses, and can be flipped up. Great idea! I hadn't seen those before - I guess I really hadn't looked, so I didn't know that they were even an option. I went right away and found some at Michael's for about $10, and have been trying them out. I really like that they just clip right on to my glasses - no fussing with a lanyard or a clip. Now I just need to deal with the lighting. My sewing room has a wonderful lamp over my chair, but as it gets darker and colder in these fall months, it's much cozier to sit in the living room!
Who knew a $10 pair of clip-on magnifying glasses and a good lamp light could be so exciting? Ha!
