    Have been reading a lot about the friction pens. Good to know that they iron and wash out. As for freezing temps and the lines coming back, I'm in Texas so I guess I'm good to go there. Excited to give these a try!
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    I made this quilt and used a brown macron fine tipped pen to mark all the lines. It might take two since it is a lot of marking. The embroidery completely covers the marks. I thought black was too dark. I use the red macron for redwork and it blends right in.

    I enjoyed the pattern so much, I just bought a different one from the same designer while on vacation.

    I use pigma pens fo mark my "redwork". The red embroidery thread covered it completely and no one knows it is there. I am doing a blue one next and will use a blue pigma pen for the same reason. Hope this helps.
