Well, it looks like spring, and last week it felt like summer....
But now we're back to freezing. I'm still working hard on the green quilt, I got nothing done on it last week because it was far too warm to hold it in my lap. This week, it's keeping me warm!
I wanted to share a product I won from Kelly at I Have A Notion, last December. I gave it to my mum, but recently borrowed it for quilting. It's the Beam N Read light and WOW is it wonderful.
It has two settings, one for 3 lights, and one for 6 lights. I've been using the 3 light setting on the lighthouse quilt, which is navy thread on navy waves on a navy background....this one....
and believe it or not, with the Beam N Read, I can actually see the waves without being in the sunlight! I can even quilt this at night. Amazing. Kelly has an online store where you can get it, and her customer service can't be beat. She also has a great blog where she reviews products and more, she's the most upbeat, wonderful person. Her store is HERE. If you struggle to get enough light on your hand work, you need the Beam N Read!
I've also joined a mini-challenge that Kelly is doing. It's called Bling Your Thing, and I'm having fun with it! Although I'm having a hard time coming up with THE idea - I've come up with four so far, now to pick one, lol. I'm using a crystal applicator and crystals that I bought about 5 years ago and never tried.
So I'm actually busy, working on various things, but nothing to show. I've also been trying to draw up some things, but seem to be in a very dry spot creatively. Maybe I need a finish or two first. I hope to have something to show you soon, besides foliage, lol!
