I stumbled upon a blog, don’t know how I got there. But am I glad I did. It’s Mary Corbert’s Needle ‘n Thread. For the last 6 months or so, I’ve been reading her posts both current and Archived. And it renewed my interest in needle work. (And started me to posting my own blog about my adventures.) I could go on and on about the wonderful things I’ve read there but this post is about something special.
On her site, she did a review of Needle Needs frame and stand. I became intrigued and visited their site and saw their demo video. This was JUST what I was looking for many moons ago. So I saved and used up by hobby budget–not for quilting supplies–but for my “new” needlework needs (no pun intended). And here it is:
I also started a new project and have been using the frame and stand and, I love them!
I thought I would need a new work chair. Something more upright and ergonomic, but, I found that I can do my needlework in the living room with what I already have.
I was planning on getting rid of the lazy boy, but now I’m thinking I’ll just re-upholster it instead. The fabric is very dated and worn. But it’s still comfortable. I just need to find a way to get enough light and find a better solution for the lighted magnifying clamp-on light. For now, it works.
