On Monday I had another fun, squishy package in the mail (love them!) - it was my Civil War Chronicles, Month 8 from Primitive Gatherings. I decided that I needed to be very productive yesterday and actually pieced them all.
I remember reading a lot of blog posts after market that were talking about a new Pilot pen with disappearing ink. There were rave reviews about this pen and that it is perfect for marking quilts. The next time I was at Staples I found them...
I bought this 3 pack - I think the pack was around $6. I tried them for the first time yesterday, and they work wonderfully! I was finally quilting my banner for my booth - and just marked it using the black pen. When I was finished quilting I just touched the lines with a hot iron and they disappeared! Works great - and they are much less expensive than most of the markers that are made for quilting. These are called Frixion by Pilot - give them a try!
I was going to end here, but it's just not the same without a cat picture. This is a really bad pic (shocking...they are ALL bad pics when I take them!). Two calicoes in the window. How long do you think this lasted before someone (CC) threw a little hissy fit? Yeah...about 3 seconds!
Have a great day!
