I'm working on a detailed picture on 18 count fabric. It seems to be harder on my eyes than it used to be.
I wear bifocals. Has anyone used the drug store 'cheater' glasses. Since I go back and forth between fabric and pattern, I don't think a magnifying glass around my neck would be the right thing.
I'm struggling and really want to get this finished up.
Definitely use cheaters! I don't always need them, but they are great to have around when I do.
Good advice, but if I see words like intricate I really want to try it!
Those kids just look wrong to me!
More good advice! Thanks a bunch!
Very interesting, thank you for the link.
Love the mitts and the album! And the cat quilt, and and and..........
Since I do large projects, I always wash them. After handling them for several months, there is sure to be a lot of dirt on it. Plus oils from my hands.
I usually use a mild dish soap or shampoo. I will put luke warm water in the bathtub, about 2 inches worth. Then I will dunk from both ends of the project. Then I will rinse it until the water runs clear.
Carefully roll/wrap in a towel to remove as much water as possible. Then lay it over my portable clothes dryer on top of a towel to dry. And I almost always need to "square" it back up. No biggie, easy enough to do. Plus, washing it will brighten up the colors.
