Hand Embroidery And Punch Needle...

Good Morning !
It's a chilly morning here and the sun
just isn't sure if it wants to make an appearance.
As I settle in with a cup of coffee and
some avocado toast (yum)...
I wanted to show you 
what I have been working on.

I've been adding some hand embroidery 
around my punched Spring Lamb.

Using the same Valdani colors 
I used to punch the cherry blossom,
I brought the design out into 
the border with embroidery.

Fine Line Erasable Marking Pen

I used a water erasable fine line
marking pen to transfer my design.
When I completed the embroidery, 
I simply misted the area and then blotted it
with a clean cloth.  All the markings disappeared.
I'd love to hear what YOUR favorite 
Marking Pen is !

Have a beautifully creative day !

    1. Hi Pamela...
      I embroidered this piece shortly after using the erasable marking pen.
      There were no markings remaining after I misted with water. I have heard others say the longer you leave the markings on the cloth, the harder they are to remove, but I have not had that experience.

  6. Oh my! I love how the embroidery continues where the punching left off! Absolutely beautiful!
    If it's a large embroidery, I use the Micron pen in similar color to the thread. If it's a small piece I just mark lightly with a pencil.
