Sharing ideas…

Last weekend at Carols retreat, we all had a giggle when Gai came out with her miners light attached to her head!!!

But we all had a go, thought what a great idea for stitching….so on Friday the DH went to the local hardware shop and now I have my very own miners light…LOL..

Not what one would call a fashion accessory!!!!!….I am sure if anyone came to our door and I forgot to remove it, they would think I had totally lost the plot…!!!!

So this lovely piece is attached to the head…there are three positions for the light, so it can be directed on what you are working on…the light is bright just perfect for stitching,…..I just had to share with you this fantastic idea of Gai’s….

Happy Monday Stitching, take care, keep safe

Ideas can be life-changing.  Sometimes all you need to open the door is just one more good idea.

Anita Knutsen said...

Great idea!

Deb R said...

Ive seen this before, the hubby want to give me his hard hat which has a miners light in it...lol
Its a great idea!

Kayly said...

Where are the photos of you modeling it????
We might not wear it correctly. You have to show us how!
Dare ya!
LOL

Fiona said...

Don't forget to take it off before you leave the house, a tape measure around your neck is one thing, but a headlight is a bit more obvious! Good idea though.

MY sister-in-law uses one in the caravan. Says it's wonderful and doesn't disturb the hubby! :)

Leanne said...

A great idea but just a little bit funny.

shez said...

wow Peg what a great idea,we are going camping soon and that would be great,thankyou for telling us.xx

Roseanne said...

what a great idea my son has one may be I can use his LOL

Melody said...

A great idea. I think you should show us a photo of you wearing yours.

Daisy Jayne said...

thank you for sharing.... hubby off to the hardware shop for me

Vicki said...

I'm with the other girls - a photo would certainly show us how good it is!! But, it certainly sounds like a wonderful idea - as long as you have extra batteries on hand!!

Lynda said...

John uses one of these when he goes up the back yard at night to put out the bins and other little jobs. Great idea Peg.

Kelli said...

What a great use for one of those! I think my husband has one somewhere.. hmmm.. might have to try it out. LOL

Cathy said...

Haha... That's so funny, 3 Tassie quilters whose husbands had these for camping can occasionally be seen with these lights attached to our heads when stitching...we call them our "dickhead" lights.... Sorry for the language, but you have to admit you do feel like one when stitching with it on your head!!! Haha

Wendy said...

What a great idea! Thanks for sharing this would be great and easily portable as well.

OH Peg, I think this looks like just the ticket for my poor eyes. I'm going to see if I can find one here in the US...surely they sell them everywhere, or am I being a bit too optimistic? Big Hugs...

Maria said...

One of Patch members used one on our last retreat.
We did giggle but it works a treat....

Lyn said...

A great idea..you can't always guarantee that there will be somewhere to plug in a lamp..so with the lamp you could stitch anywhere..

Hi Peg,
I think it sounds like a lovely fashion statement. The older I get, the more light I need! I would also like to say a special thank you for the warm welcome you arranged for my new blog. It was like a big hug from faraway places and it really made my day. Thank you! Debbie

debbie said...

Hi Peg, Thanks for letting me know about the no reply stuff. I am hoping it is fixed now, so I've come back to leave you another message. Thank you for your help.

Cathy said...

I love the light. I wonder if we can get them here? Is it heavy?
I am so excited my package made it to you. I was so worried. Wow, 2 months. I wonder if that is normal? Something to take into consideration in the future.

simplestitches said...

you might start a new trend with your mining light...it's a great idea...funny if you forgot about it though!

Rose Marie said...

LOL ... I enjoyed the chuckle ... but I can see how great this would work in a room that doesn't have great lighting.

Fiona @ Dragonfly-Crafts said...

Great idea I agree, Sam might find his missing soon LOL

Anita said...

Great idea! I can just see my boys shaking their heads right now LOL
