I suppose it's called the January Blue's. Did you know that last Monday is known as Blue Monday (woot! Wikipedia is back)?
Occasionally I get my Liberated Amish quilt out and do a bit of hand quilting, and I've been thinking about the border whilst waiting for my bargain copy of Quilting with Style by Gwen Marston and Joe Cunningham to arrive. I found it second hand on Amazon for £5, plus postage. Bargain!
Anyhow, this is my latest idea.
I think it might work if I can redraw the leaves so they are a bit closer. Thank goodness for chalk wheel markers. Rub it out and start again.
I also ordered a Hera Marker (which was expensive as I forgot about the postage from the UK. Sssssh don't tell The Old One!).
I like using my chalk wheel marker for doodling, but for straight lines I think I'm veering towards the Marker.
Have you tried using the Pilot Frixion pens for marking fabric?

My friend Pippa sent me one to try and I must admit they are brilliant, but I find there is still a faint trace of a line left and all that rubbing tends to loosen the stitches a bit.
So the Hera Marker it is.
Hurry up Mr le facture!
I'll be back as soon as the goodies arrive from the UK. Got some yummy presents from the Christmas and birthday haul to show you.
