Scarecrow Disaster Fixed

The Guilty party who loves to hang out in the Dryer!!!!

The other night I opened a coke, set in on my side table and then proceeded to stitch. Bert decided to chase the bug in the house which is usually cute, but this time he jumped up on my side table. Which sent the coke flying off the table and onto my scarecrow. I screamed so loud it worked Mark up and he came running thinking I was hurt. The coke pooled onto the design and I had to rush it to the sink to soak.


After soaking and then drying in the bathroom for a couple of days. I ironed out the wrinkles and was able to work on it for a couple of hours today. I stitched in the spider in Alpaca Rainbow Gallery threads. I usually do not like fluffy fibers but when using it on 7 ct fabric...it is not hard to work with at all!!! It is coming along nicely..hopefully I will be able to have it stitched and then finished before Halloween.

Thank goodness the Coke came out of the fabric and didn't stain your fibers. Looking really great and love the colors in this one.
