Congratulations to Sharon whose number came up on the Random Number Generator - aka Mr. Squash! Sharon wins a copy of Loft Creations newest bag pattern - All About Anna! Thanks to everyone for their wonderful comments about my Gramma!
For a very long time I've been on a quest to find the perfect light for illuminating my hand sewing projects. I've been through quite a few and finally came upon what I consider to be my most favorite!
It's called the Beam N Read and I asked Mr. Squash for it for Christmas. He actually hesitated because he said I didn't look anywhere near the age of the cover model, and I told him that was neither here nor there. But it was nice of him to make that comment - gotta love him!This is what it looks like out of the box. The flat back fits against your body. The strap is also adjustable. It puts out a most wonderful light, yet doesn't seem to bother the person sitting next to you. It stays steady around your neck and also comes with a red and a yellow filter for different applications.
Here is how it looks around my neck. Of all the gadgets I've purchased in the last several years, this tops them all! You can go right to the Beam N Read website and order one there. (This is not a paid advertisement).
Here is a recent reject. It's reading glasses in my strength, with little lights on each corner. They aren't bad, but I have a narrow face and the lights are too far apart for the type of illumination I need. They are from I Lights.
Another recent reject. This is a small Ott Lite. I got it at JoAnn's on a 50% off coupon. It has a clip on the back that you can clip on whatever you're wearing. The front panel opens up and turns on the light, which is quite bright. The problem I had with this one is unless you're wearing something heavy, it doesn't stay upright. Also, you're stuck with whatever height your item of clothing is, so if you need the light to be closer or farther from your work, you're out of luck.
Be sure to come back Friday when I'll have another fantastic reveal!
