Hi Jenny - I'm wondering what you use to transfer your patterns on to fabric. I just had a blue water soluble pen ruin a block I stitched - it bled all over when I sprayed it to make it disappear. Your work is so lovely & precise - it's a joy to follow your blog.

I use a brown 0.3mm Zig Millenium pen, Annmarie. It is permanent, so you need to keep your stitching on the lines, but I love it!

Jenny, I love your blog. I just discovered your tutorial using a vintage doily to make soap bags and a journal cover. Now I know how to use up some of the great stitchery left by my late mom. I have a trunk full of embroidered and crocheted pieces done in the 1940s and 1950s. Thanks for the great projects!

Wow, Evie, you have a veritable treasure store at your fingertips. \o/
