Golfer Playing Under Light on a Larger Fairway

The black area was a lot easier to stitch thanks to the StarMag that Karen at Nimble Needle recommended. I wanted a clip-on with a flexible arm, magnifier, & a light. Something easy for travel. And, not costing an arm and a leg. I got all that!!! Bonus is that it can be used as freestanding table lamp.

Clip-on light

I got out my Jacquard Textile paints in order to expand the fairway (& water) in order to make the area 7 & 1/4″ square. That should be enough to make an eye glass case for my husband’s sunglasses. I want the holder lined & his sunglasses are kind of big the way they fold. The color dried lighter and isn’t an exact match, but I just wanted some color under the thread anyway.

It’s working fine & I’m really glad I pulled out the paints. Using Vineyard Merino wool on 14 count probably would have allowed some white to be seen. But, with the painted canvas, it is fine. I think on the back 9 now!!
