    wall hanging

    my best friend gave me her old dress to make a quilted item for her. Since she is an avid gardner I decided to make her a wall hanging. This is from a pattern, modified a bit. In the middle block ' Love Grows in my Garden' will be written. The kit instruction says to use a marking pen, but I think that I would rather hand embroidered.

    Has anyone used a pen and will it stay, not fade?

    That is adorable......I have used paint pens and as long as they dont stick the item in the dryer, it stays great.

    Oh my, that is lovely. What a great idea. She will love it. I always hand embroider my wordings. Just use a pencil lightly to write out the words, them stem stitch over it. Works every time. Practice on a separate piece first to see if you will like it.
