Cross Stitch Charts for Tired Eyes
I have discovered a way to use my old cross-stitch patterns. I was afraid that I would never be able to do cross-stitch again, because my vision has gotten to the point where I can't see the charts anymore.
Well, I put my brain to work on that problem, and realized one easy solution. Using the scanner with my computer, I scan the design and save it on my hard drive. Then, I open the design and enlarge it on my screen! I can get as close as I want, and I can see every single little detail. It is so cool!

So, now I've been scanning all my cross-stitch designs and writing them to a CD so I can use them on any computer. Way cool.
