In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

New Toy

There won't be much stitching tonight because this arrived today!

Mary Corbet wrote about this device on her site a week or so ago.  I trotted over to Amazon, read the reviews, took a deep breath, and ordered it.

Considering that my lightbox has consisted of a sheet of glass suspended between two ottomans in the living room, which kills my back and doesn't do much for Baby Girl (whose steady hand is actually the source of most of my embroidery tracing), this is a long overdue and much needed upgrade.

And with my plans for my Cabinet of Curiosities really coming together, I have a feeling I'll be using just about every one of its 50000 hours of light.  Meanwhile, I'm going to go trace something.


  1. This definitely beats standing at the window, holding your image and canvas or fabric taut, trying to trace the image. Oh, these modern inventions!, Do enjoy your new toy, Ann.

  2. How fun! hahaha! When needed, I actually snagged our boys' "How To Draw Custom Cars Artist's Light Box". ;) It works pretty darn well after all these years.
