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.
