It's a start though, and it's looking reall neat! I hope your eyes will get better soon so you can make lots of progress next month instead ^_^
I've been having trouble seeing mine as well. I'm saving for a lamp and hoping that it helps.
Lovely color you chose to start with. I must agree that getting a good lamp was immensely helpful in being able to see. The magnifying glass did help, but I can now stitch without it as long as I use my light. Hope it gets easier for you in February!
All progress is good progress! It's a great start. I'm sure you'll have more progress next month.
