XS Afghan Block #11





Block Number 11.  I have started working on the house.  I have most of the border done for this block.  I hope to get some serious time on this one soon and perhaps finish this block and move on to something else.  I do want to make a note to all those stitchers that follow me.  For the first time ever I have had a chart (copied on my home printer) leave ink on the fabric.  I use the magnet you see in the middle to hold my chart as I work.  (It is one of my speed secrets - if your chart is right there, you can check it and keep on stitching without a pause.)  This problem happened for a friend of mine and I had never seen it happen before.  (perhaps the printer inks are different now?)  She (and now I) used a miracle eraser to rub off the ink.  It works rather well.  I do plan to not let this happen again.  I can fold the chart or place something behind it to protect the fabric.  I am just curious if others have found this to be a problem.

Sorry to hear this happened - I put my smaller patterns in a Ziploc-type bag and my larger ones in a clear plastic sheet cover for reports - works perfectly and I can place it on top of my work where I can see it easily.

if there is ANY moisture it will bleed unless you are using photo ink. commercial copiers don't bleed if wet.
