Progress...and Highlighters

Here is further progress on Faerie Summer Love.  I got to do some beads and Kreinik backstitch!!

Now to highlighters.  If you are like me, you highlight your pattern as you go along.  There are different kinds of highlighters with different caps and ends.  I tried the Sharpie retractable highlighter the other day and I do not like it.  I had been using the Bic brand of Brite Liner highlighter.  It is a fairly thin highlighter and has a good pointy tip, perfect for highlighting one symbol at a time if you need to, but I thought I could save some time having a retractable highlighter where I could just click instead of removing and replacing a cap.  Well, the Sharpie highlighter tip is very fat and when I go to highlight a symbol I really can't see where I am highlighting because it is a fairly thick highlighter.  So, I am going back to the Bic Brite Liner.  

In this picture the Sharpie liner is the pink one and the Bic Brite Liner is the green one.

Until next time...


  1. I don't like the retractable ones with, I felt like they dried out really fast!!

  2. Do you iron your fabric before putting it in a frame?
