    Another light bulb moment

    I've been sewing binding onto my king sized quilt. Way too hot to sew on my lap (my usual way). Yesterday I tried using my kitchen table. That was hard on my back. Today I just accordian pleated the quilt on two chairs, draped binding over back of chairs, sat behind back & sewed away. Bingo, just the right height for me. Probably I'm the last to know this.grin.

    No-no, we all do whatever works! Here's my method with light source close enough to do black thread on 2 black fabrics! Used a quilt display rack that was made for me, office chair, bed pillows and a little clip-on light with an Ott bulb!

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
