Cover you pattern with the sticky stuff - called contact over here in Australia.
You can photocopy on white paper, then cover with a coloured contact, and that also stops the ink getting onto your work. I like a jade green to work on best.
And yes, up-dated specs help!! (don't I know it!!!!!!!! :) )
Thank you very much.
It is very difficult to work white thread on a white background. I've learned a lot of things in working this sampler. One being that I should have a different color background than the thread I'm using. Another is to cover over my pattern with clear plastic (the reason the threads became so dingy is the lead from the pattern rubbed off on the lace -- I have ideas on how to clean it so it's nice and white again). And last (but definitely not least) is that I need new glasses.
Don't you find it hard to work a white thread against a white background?
