My, the days are feeling more Autumn-like than I care for. 62F at 2:30 pm is a bit unusual but so perfect for stitching!!!!!
Some stitching progress has been accomplished on my most recent linen piece (post here)……………
As you can see in the photos, I use a blue, water erase, marker. I have found that, once the marked design is stitched, the blue lines may prove to be an unwanted/unnecessary distraction when I get to the background fill, or just to the next process. I found that Clover makes an “eraser pen” that will take away the blue marks without driving them into the batting or wetting the fabric extensively so that stitching comes to a halt while awaiting the drying of the affected area. I have been using it for a while, now, and on different types of fabric, with great success. I first saw this used when I watched a video tutorial of Karen McTavish, who, also, recommends it use.
Now, it’s back to my Juki……………….
