Oh, dear, belated sympathy to the friend...<G>
A good reason to always keep the beeswax, Thread Heaven, or whatever
separate from the catual embroidery!

> What she wound up having to do was to iron out (over paper towels) as
> much of the wax as she could, then finish the embroidery, before
> trying to remove the wax. This was not fun, but she couldn't remove
> the wax first because she had marked the design outlines with a
> water-disappearing blue pen, and washing or cleaning the fabric would
> have removed the outlines.
