StarMag's Clip-on/Freestanding Magnifying LED Light

Melita just posted on Facebook that she loves the StarMag LED light/magnifier from Daylight that clips onto her Evertites.  (The clip opens up to about an inch and a half wide.)  It can also be used as a tabletop light as there are little legs that pull out to stabilize the light/magnifier when it isn't clipped to your frame.   Melita got this from Nimble Needle in New Jersey.  Here it is from their website.

Ornaments for the Wheel Obsessed Set

If you happen to have someone obsessed with wheels and motors you'd like to stitch for, Pocket Full of Stitches has posted photographs of the little ornaments from Strictly Christmas that cater to the small boy and girl in all of us.   These can be hard to find so I hope this helps those who want a motorized Christmas.
