So in the meantime, I've figured that I definitely can do something with glare. They have made me some prescription glasses that was supposed to help for use inside but not much with the computers. BUT, I'm off today, so I'm experimenting with just wearing BIG, BIG Jacki 0 sunglasses to finish my reading on the computer and it's given me some relief. I will not be freaking people at work out with wearing these indoors but man, does it help with high lighting situations.
Next step is to google a computer screen glare thingie, I think there is one to attach to the monitors.
Now, Abbie, on the other hand, is probably thinking I've really lost it wearing big sunglasses to write on the computer, but I just gave her a treat so she is fine. She just wants a pair too.
I have some mail goodies I got and also a finish I had stitched way long ago and had put in to a big matted large frame but found it this week to be just right for a thrift store find several months ago. I have 2 of these perfect size frames for Little House Needleworks Proverbs thread pack series. Here is one I finished a WAY long time ago but in a new frame.
When it's officially framed, straightening and stretching later, I'll show a pic. Right now, just put the frame over the finish for you to get a peek and when my other framer partner comes home, will work on finishing it.
Other mail goodies arrived included some flosses and patterns I ordered around or after Christmas, the time blended together.
Anyways, the flosses are luscious and so are the patterns.
I like to occasionally order from EBay stores and I will let you know that Liberty Primitives is my fave Ebay store. I wrote Nancy a note because the service and shipping is great. She always puts a lovely note with at least 3 freebies as well that are soooo cute.
The flosses are from a different place.

This is from Annie Beez and it has intrigued me for awhile. I love the colors, the design, and the many interpreted meanings of this saying by W. Blake.
"A Robin Redbreast in a Cage, puts all Heaven in a Rage"
and some freebies too
3 of them
Very pretty Tulip Star Sampler
I particulary love the color Uniform Blue. I used it last year when I stitched Brandon's sampler pillowkeep. It was already in the kit and I just love that color.
and have something I designed hopefully one day to stitch the model using it.
Cameo pink and Strawberry Parfeit and Raspberry Parfeit ( of which I needed to replace from Abbies Christmas Morning Sampler I just finished.
Vintage lace, Morris Blue, Old Blue Paint, Old Red paint.....on and on. I love them all.
There are several things today to be thankful for, more than I originally ever thought possible.
1. Large, Jackie O sunglasses.......for indoors while reading or stitching.
2. Forgetting right now about learning to stitch on 40 or more count and feeling ok with it. My favorite count is 32. This is a hobby not a marathon race or competition.
3. Going to bed at 9 or 10 o'clock every night for more rest. I have to make myself do this as I'm a night owl by nature but after a couple of weeks, it's becoming second nature.
4. No more night driving if I can help it at all. (actually this will help pedestrians and other drivers) ;)
5. Still having the ability to enjoy designing a bit, even if I do wear sunglasses to do it. LOL
Adjusting to change. Some big, some not so big.
