Ha ha! I love it!

Joanne

I vote Honey badger. they are the most bad ass animals
ever. i saw a video of one stealing a snake's food and then also eating a snake. it was awful and hardcore all at once.

Cate

Those things are seriously hardcore! I'm amazed that they can be bitten by a cobra and just pass out for a short while. How is that even possible??

starting to get into embroidery - noticing the blue transfer of the design on your piece. Is it a marker? washable? thoughts on where to begin learning?

Cate

I'm so glad to hear that you are starting to embroider! It is such a wonderful activity; I'd love to see the world take it up en masse. :)

The blue markings are from a water erasable pen. I get mine from JoAnn's fabrics and CreateForLess.com, but most shops that sell notions (online or brick & mortar) should have them. To transfer, I tape my design on a window and tape my fabric over it, and then just trace all the lines. To wash out the blue, I spray with water from a spray bottle. I used to run it under the faucet, but I found that wringing out the fabric caused too much wrinkling which is hard to get out with the embroidery on the fabric. Just make certain that your floss is colorfast before using this method. I've ruined quite a few pieces by trying to use cheaper floss that bled horribly once it was wet. DMC and Anchor are both good choices, but there are other good brands out there, too.

Best of luck!
