I bought a Daylight floor lamp last month. I love it. I can stitch at
night again.

Aren't they wonderful?  I bought an Ott light probably15 or 16 years
ago and am still on the same bulb!  They are long lasting because I
have put in a lot of evening hours using it.

In addition to the lamp, my favorite tool is my spring loaded tension
hoop.  I have several sizes and shapes.  They are great for keeping
slippery fabric nice and night, and leave no hoop marks.

DH's laser level!!! :)

Saturday night I was trying to work on my BAP, The Dreamer, which was
still on q-snaps. It kept falling out of my stand's clamp (I thought I
finally had that problem licked, too). I gave up and decided to trim
the fabric to fit in the scroll rods I have (the sidebars are squared,
so my stand can hold them better than the q-snaps's rounded edge). We
spent entirely too long trying to figure out how to get a straight
edge down 30" or so of fabric. We were trying to use pins to mark the
edge, when I started poking around for a large ruler I swore we had.
Suddenly, "umm..hon, don't we have a laser level?" "Oh, right." Gee,
remembering THAT would have saved us a lot of time! So, yeah, that's
my favorite tool at the moment. :)

What a great idea! I'll remember that next time I take on an extra
large project.
