Wanted to first say that everyone's pieces are coming along SO nicely!! I just got back to stitching this past week after a 2 year loss of xstitching mojo. Glad to be amongst the xstitching world again!
Now, I have a question. I see that a lot of you grid your pieces. I have The Story Keeper going (need to find it to start working on it again since I moved) and I didn't grid. But I am working 20 x 20 squares when I work on it. When you grid, do you use thread or do you use fabric marker that comes out in the wash? And, do you wash your pieces after you stitch them to get it out? I think I would be afraid to wash my piece. LOL I'm always very careful to wash my hands before I stitch and keep my pieces in a container so they don't get dirty.
Anywhoot... I'd love to hear from you all on this.
