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.

 I think that these are strawberries.

I really wish my printer/copier would allow me to enlarge things, because the chart I'm using for this section is teeny. Despite magnification, I'm having problems seeing it.

And that was just one of the topics of conversation at the EGA Stitch-In yesterday. We are all getting older and it's getting harder to see. Even with my cyborg eyes and additional magnification, I'm finding teeny little things more difficult to do.

This does not mean I'm going to stop trying. Since I tend to be attracted to the teeny, I am going to figure out a way to make it work.

Or I can replace the printer/copier with one that allows me to enlarge stuff.


  1. Hi,

    I take a photo of the graphics with my iPhone, then, while in photo edit mode on my iPad, can enlarge the picture and use my iPen to check off each stitch or area I'm working on. I wrote about what I do on by blog below. Hope this helps.

  2. Alas, no iPhone, iPad, or iPen in my arsenal.
