One thing about it, these liquid embroidery pens have been around for a
long time. I remember my mother getting some and using them in the
early 1950's. They seem to come back into fashion every 10-15 years or
so. The new pens must be better than the paint tubes with a ball point
on them! I remember that they were difficult to work with so I imagine
that they have been getting easier and better each time they pop up. I
think I even have some of Aunt Martha's patterns from the 1970's!
Katherine Wheels! I understand. My home barony in Drachenwald has an
award of the Katherine Wheel. It is Gules and Or, overall a Katherine's
Wheel counterchanged. It really does look lovely... when someone else
does it :-)
