Necessity is the mother of invention

Another light ring on my Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen has started flickering… So, as I need to use my machine, I’ve turned the light off to stop the strobing effect. But there’s not enough natural light to see what I’m doing and the overhead lights are too yellow and just create lots of shadows. So I’ve placed a floor lamp with a white light on the right on the table, and I’ve ‘jerry-rigged’ an OTT Task Lamp on the left.

I used long twist ties to tie the OTT light to the spool holder on the left and to tie the handle to the left side of the thread mast. It’s not as good as the light ring, but it works!
