One thing I learned last week while working on my stained glass window quilt was the difficulty in working with black. My Pfaff sewing machine is very functional. It has an LED light shining on the stitching area, more than my other machines had. Other than that I have the ceiling light.
In order to see my stitching line with all the black, I had to get really close to the needle area to make sure it was lined up.
When the project was complete, a lightbulb went off in my head. Why don’t I have more light on the subject? My answer, as usual, was to check on Amazon to look for additional lighting.
I wanted a floor lamp with flexible lighting and found this model, which had more than enough features.
It arrived on Monday and was not difficult to assemble. It has a very heavy sturdy base and the top flexible LED lamp. It fits very nicely alongside my sewing table and is just what I needed for complete coverage of the area. I keep it on the brightest lighting level and there’s no need to change that.
Voila! Isn’t it great? I don’t know why I didn’t do this a whole lot sooner.
I really didn’t get any quilting done this week because I am still continuing to have physical problems which keep me from sitting at the machine for any length of time. I did manage to wind a few bobbins.
My project for next week will be finishing a challenge wallhanging for the Endeavourers.
The fall colors have been lovely here, but they are on the way out. With the cold weather setting in I hope you are all staying warm and in good health.
