about my dragon. I always learn so much when I make a quilt. I am using that @#%&@# metallic thread. I had read somewhere that a product called Sewers Aid, when applied to thread, kept it from fraying so badly. At first I was only using a small amount, but I kept getting frays, so I put a generous line down the side of the spool of thread and rubbed it around the entire spool. I do that quite frequently and it seems to be working much better. The other thing I discovered was the Fons and Porter mechanical marking pencil I told you about yesterday-------------------works like a dream (since I am having to fill in my dragon design free handed.) Anyway........................TADA!
I pinned my pattern on so you would easier see what I am doing. What do you think? Let me know. The jury is still out on whether it shows up enough.
