Geneen suggested trying a 'head light'......which actually isn't strange because at that point I had already pulled out one from 'the husband's' workshop. I was desperate. But, it was impossible to direct the light to my work when I lowered my head to stitch.
In the end I ordered the monster light I showed here....but when I found out it couldn't be shipped until April 28 AND had to come by an over the road trucker....I suspected this lamp was really huge.
I cancelled the order and made a trek to Pottery Barn in Greenville, SC. (I hadn't realized there was a store there or I'd have started with them in the first place!) Instead, I purchased this lamp...which I LOVE. I have to say Pottery Barn could do better with their online descriptions......this worked but reading the info you'd never know it could be adjusted to accommodate the needs I have.
Can you tell I really like it? Here's three photos showing it off.......
