Thanks to a comment left by Margie, I’ve now ordered “Magni-Clips“.
I tried to match them up to the size/shape of my glasses. There are plenty of different sizes/shapes available. I ordered 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0. One isn’t available for now but the other two should be here Sunday.
Since they aren’t here yet so I can’t comment on how they work but this is what I had been wanting. I went to three local eyeglass shops . . and considering how little I go out, that was quite challenging for me . . and not a single one of them had any idea what I was talking about. I did look on Amazon but apparently I wasn’t using the correct terms because after reading Margie’s comment, I went straight to Amazon and found them.
Last night I stitched for 5 or 6 hours . . here’s proof that I stitched 500+ stitches again yesterday. It was mostly border and it went quickly but 509 stitches is 509 stitches and I’m almost 20% done.
Anyway . . I wore the glasses with the battery and using the light for 5 or 6 hours and they were fine. Didn’t hurt my nose, didn’t slip down my forehead. They were quite comfortable but again, everyone is different so what works for me, won’t necessarily work for you.
I’m hoping the Magni-Clips work because that will be the easiest way to magnify whatever I’m doing and I always have my glasses with me.
Second, I’m very happy with the lighted magnifier I got this week. That will be what I carry with me when we travel to places where I may not have excellent lighting available (cabins we rent, my uncle’s house, etc.). It also makes me happy to have these so if/when our power is out, I can still stitch. Just another little tool in my preparedness chest.
