I finished BIG stitch quilting the houses on my Homespun Houses Quilt…(insert happy dance)…now onto the vine!!
Because BIG stitch quilting is so visible I always mark my stitching lines. This makes my hand stitching easier…more uniform, straighter and tidier. NOW the vine is stitched onto BLACK homespun…how to mark my stitching line on the black fabric? WELL…I have been dying to use this new Clover Fine white pen that I bought at JoAnn’s last winter!
So I drew my line and NOTHING..no white line!! Darn…I must have bought a dud...! BUT WAIT…like magic the white line appeared before my eyes!! YES, it goes on CLEAR and then magically appears about 10 seconds after applying!!
Check out around the star…this is the white line after I have stitched. I will spritz with water and it will magically disappear! LOVE THIS PEN!!
It marks a nice fine line perfect for stitching!!
It’s a GOOD THING…I would put it right ‘up there’ with my Beam N Read light…another Good Thing! They go together like peanut butter and jam… Making my sandwiching so much sweeter!
Have a magical Monday…and happy stitching! ~P
