Pencils, toddlers and cross stitch

Last night I decided to finally finish up "Mary's Lamb Sampler."  It was mounted and in its frame but I needed to put a backing on and a hanger for the wall.  I got that all finished and left it on the table because I couldn't find the nails to hang it on the wall.  This morning, she snuck out of the living room, grabbed a pencil and did this:

I'm totally gonna cry.


  1. Oh my, no wonder you feel like crying. I wonder if you have tried using a white eraser very gently on the pencil lines. Sometimes it works if the line is not too dark. It might be worth a try before you get in to more drastic solutions. Good luck. Irene xxx

    1. I pulled out my kneaded eraser and it seems to have faded the lines somewhat. I have not tried much else. My mom suggested shout wipes but I don't have any at the moment. the other thing I could think of was rubbing alcohol because I know that works great on pen. I'm just letting it sit at the moment. I spent so much time stretching it and mounting it that I just don't have the heart to take it apart.

  2. Oh no... hope you can get Mary cleaned up. Sorry I have no suggestions for you on how to do it though.
