One of the worst things about getting older has been that my eyes just aren't what they used to be. I can still read ok without glasses so long as the print isn't extremely small but no way can I possibly thread a needle anymore without glasses.
I had to buy one of those cords for my glasses because I kept putting them down and forgetting where I laid them. I spent more time hunting for my glasses than I did on the projects I was working on.
Right now I'm stitching another candle mat. I've made this one before but I had given it to a friend for Christmas so I thought I would make another one.
