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 :-)
