Yes, I agree -- I will never use pencil again. I've used the disappearing ink
pens without a problem. I've also basted the lines in with colored thread.
This was the first time I have ever used pencil, and I only did it because of
the recommendation of a _very_ well-respected needlework teacher who teaches
in the Embroiderer's Guild of America (EGA) and in the American Needlepoint
Guild (ANG). Her advice for many other things was sound. I would say that
her advice here was off the mark (so to speak). Unfortunately for me, I
followed this advice while working on my Master Craftsman project, and the
judges are both picky and sharp-eyed. Nearly any other project I could have
shrugged off and said, "Live and learn." This one I am trying to rescue.
