Because he makes my eyes look it.
Another local store here carries this. Dreams in Glorietta5. It cost me around 500php... approximately a little bit more than $10usd for you guys.
Now mind you, I have 20-20 vision. My doctor said so. Though I did get frames for a 0.25 grade on my left eye...which is basically negligible according to my doc. (Whose name by the way is Dr. Enrique Enriquez... crazy parents huh?). Anyway, I clipped Bugsy on my frames and voila!!! My fabbie is clearer...and bigger.
Which is perfect as I've finally decided to do my HAED Chess Match on a 28ct aida. :D I started gridding today and man! Bugsy helps. He really does. I could barely see the tiny holes or gridlines on this 28ct. But with Bugsy, they looked like a 18ct to me. (If you're wondering why I was insane enough to use a fabbie that I can barely see... follow my logic... I'd rather do a 28ct and see it as a manageable sized cloth rather than my original 18ct cloth and see it like a blanket covering my entire bed).
I've decided to grid my Chess Match fabbie using ordinary sewing thread versus my washable marker. Why? Especially as I've just finished blogging about how I love my markers? Well....
1. The washable marker disappears through time... sort of evaporates in air... so since I KNOW my HAED will take a loooong time. I didn't fancy regridding again and again every time the ink vanishes.
2. The head/tip of my marker is larger than the ridges of my 28ct aida. It would've been hell trying to stay within the line.
3. I wanted to. (*enter spoiled tone). I liked looking at all the other expert HAED stitchers and they have nicely gridded cloth. I wanted to have the same.
Kindly remember that imitation is the best form of flattery. So...if I get tips and tricks from you folks... it just means I'm flattering you. :)
Heck, I need all the help I can get. :)
I've turned preparing to stitch my HAED into a journey all on its own. And I'm enjoying being OC about it.

Can I just say, that I love finding new stuff to add to my stitching collection :) I also got magnets!!! But I'll save that for another blog after they've posed for me. :)
