Sewing machine lighting...

I have had my Brother 1500 ??? for a bit over a year.  The lighting on it is horrible.

The lighting looks better in the photo than in real life. I suppose it looks brighter because I took it early in the day, and had no light on and the curtains were not open. When you walk in on in in normal daylight hours and look, you cannot tell if it is on or off.  It was on the other day and Roger walked in.  I was not sitting at it, so I asked him if he thought it was on or off.  He looked and said, 'Well, it's off.'  It was on!  Of course you can tell at night, when you turn the other lights off.

Now Look!  I went ahead and got a strip of LED lighting that makes all the difference in the world.  I had bought a strip for my Juki years even though there are several that were cheaper than these, I went ahead and got the same ones because I knew they worked and worked well.

I have not done much today.   A bit of housework....and spent some time tearing off the foundation papers of more of my string blocks.  And of course spent time rearranging them on the design wall.  I didn't take a pic of the latest arrangement. 

We are currently re-watching the Endeavour series....hopefully before too long our PBS will show the latest in that is one of our favorites.

I hope you all have a good weekend!
