Don't expect to see this quilt finished any time soon. I can see it will be my go to project when I want to sew but don't have anything else ready to sew. I was still dealing with the fatigue after a headache so I ran errands yesterday and then sewed a few borders on diamonds.
I found this little LED light with a twisty extension on it at Walgreen's on sale for $4. I know there is a fancy pricey bright light you can put on a machine but I needed them on 3 machines and this one fit my budget. I just wrapped the extension around the handle of the sewing machine and then twisted the light to illuminate the area to the right of the presser foot.
A lot of the newer machines have light in the area to the right of the needle but this machine is about 18 years old, the same age as my other two machines. We found out on Monday that these little lights got dimmer the longer they were on (like a half hour or more) so the plan is to turn it off when I will be away from the machine for more than 5 minutes. The lights recovered after being turned off for awhile. The little batteries will cost about 25 cents each if I buy in bulk and there are 3 in each light. It is a nice low cost alternative for me.
