Getting old

My hands and eyes are showing their age, and I don't like it one bit. Lately I've noticed my hands ache when I do a lot of hand sewing like binding. So I bought a package of these cute little binding clips and have used them on my most recent binding project. Love them - I don't need to grip the quilt as hard so my hands don't hurt.

And the old eyes? Well I've learned that even with my Ott Light I do better with navy blue (and black) thread in bright daylight. I just see it better. I set this quilt aside a week ago when I had company here because needles, thread, and sharp scissors don't mix with toddlers. So today I'm finishing up the last side while watching football.


  1. I love these clips too. And I'm right there with you on the eyes, I worry a bit about what's to come if it's this bad now! Two OTT lights?

  2. Those little clips are so handy, aren't they?
