I long ago purchased a magnifier that clamps onto either the lamp or the frame of the project. The worst project I ever cross stitched was on 14 count black Aida. My two eldest got my tree frogs on black. The stitches were impossible to see without absolute bright sunlight. Even a great lamp did not help in less daylight.

Joan - the angels were kits that my mother got for me which included the cloth, floss and instructions. Instructions for the angels are still being offered by Lavender & Lace.
Here's what they say about the Angel of Light: This is one of the first counted cross stitch angels designed by Marilyn Leavitt-Inblum in 1989. If stitched on 16 count Sage Aida or 32 count Natural Belfast Linen the design area is 10 3/4" by 14 3/4". Stitch count is 166 x 236. Both of my angels were on the 16 count Sage Aida. It took me a year to complete each angel and I needed a magnifier after a while to see the stitches! :-D Molly

M - when you say 166 x 236, do you mean centimeters or stitches?

Joan - I'm so glad you enjoy the pictures I post. However, I won't be doing any needlework in the near future because I have a jillion other projects going.
Several years ago I finished two angels by Marilyn Leavitt Imblum - the Angel of Light and the Angel of Freedom. Each of them took a year to complete as they were 166x236. If you go to http://www.123stitch.com/landl.html, you'll see a picture of the various angels that Marilyn created, including those two angels. Molly

Fodus - so the Norwegian in you likes this? I love it. I haven't done any embroidery in years because I became involved in decorative painting. This type of embroidery is almost tempting me back! Molly

Wow. It is like crocheting and embroidery combined.
