Where and when do you like to stitch? Do you use a hoop, a frame, a magnifier, special lights? Mornings? Evenings? Tea is always a bit dangerous, as is Diet Coke which I keep in a glass well away from my work. I tend to twist myself into a knot in order to see without a magnifier, and I've used the same hoop since I was eight years old. My mother gave it to me.
