Tucker's Big Boy Quilt

Here is the light that I talked about below, I really like it.
Tucker is my grand nephew, and I've been meaning to make him a big boy quilt for awhile, I've actually had the flimsy done for probably a year or so.   I also made pillowcases for him and his sisters (except one, who is out on her own), his is super heroes to match, and the girls are butterflies in various colors.  It'll be a surprise, hope they like them.  I am hoping to spend more time in my sewing room.  Since I moved here 2 years ago, I haven't been very happy with my living room - sewing room, but I think I have it pretty much usable.  I must have gotten spoiled, I have sewn in my bedroom, living room, and dining room in the past, but that was before I got to be a quilter.  I seem to have gotten away from simple.  There are many quilters, more gifted than I, who do amazing things with less, in less room.  Lighting has been one of the issues, and I have recently discovered a great little lamp, which helps immensely.  I got it at Walmart, Ideaworks Super Bright Portable LED Lamp With USB, I don't know how the longevity of it will be, but it uses 4 AA batteries, or has a USB cable.  It is nice and bright, can be put just where you want it, and folds down into about  the size of an old fashioned foot peddle.
