Challenge? Yes, it was. This project began so smoothly, with an idea that happened immediately, and then all went to pot! The design was drawn on my fabric in a disappearing ink pen (no problem) and I got to work. About 1/4 in to the embroidery, I had to set it aside for a while, and that's when I learned the devastating effects of humidity. The flipping pattern disappeared. Poof. But I powered on, because poor Marilyn was headless and that was just unacceptable. Here's the result, complete with a supposed tattoo gun.

My immediate thought on the pattern was that it looked like tattoo flash and so I ran with it.
