thanks so much for all your lovely comments!

I'd be delighted if you wanted to stitch one of your own. Just a hint, you need to stitch the tights and the puddle or she just looks like she is standing funny.

thanks kittykill!I found the graphic on pinterest  if anyone is interested:
I got the image onto the fabric using a poor man's lightbox. I put the graphic into a word file then I traced it straight off the screen. It works well.

don't worry about the pen, I got the worst of it out and the rest my mum and I (it's a mother's day present) just went meh, doesn't matter. It's only a few small spots and a small blue line about 1cm long.

Thanks! It looks really good. I hope the other person doesn't mind that I've used their idea but they say imitation's the most sincere form of flattery right?

This image has been around a while and I've been wanting to do one. Sadly I do not paint well. So I made this embriodery, which was heavily inspired by this project:

The image of the girl comes from a deviantart page that I can't find to credit and I think may have been recently removed. I traced the image using a Clover washable pen and ruled in some rain and backstiched the image. Here is a picture with all the embriodery complete and it just needing a bath:

Sadly after this things hit a snag, part of the washable Clover pen would not come out. Just a few small patches, but very noticeable. I then spent a lot of time trying to remove it. I tried nappy cleaner and it remained. I scrubbed hard with bi carb soda and water, it faded a little bit. I was wondering if I should just think up something to embrioder over when a friend said to try methylated spirits, or metho in this part of the world. I soaked the patches for a long time.. eventually most of it came out though there are still small patches of the texta here and there. I no longer recomend Clover pens.

It's my first time making an embriodery that is displayed in a hoop and I think it looks great!

Hi I'm hoping someone can help me. I've done a backstitched hoop and a small portion of the marker has not washed out and its very noticeable. The marker was a high quality clover pen. I've tried soaking it in napisan (nappy cleaner) and its still there. Can anyone help?

Wish my sewing skills were a bit better but the Birthday girl didn't care.
