...while I was making a quilt label using my trusty Micron pen and beloved starch, Best Press.
Most likely, everyone but me knows that you shouldn't spray the starch alternative directly onto the ink seconds after writing!
Like any excellent investigator, I wrote again on my, now ruined, label and waited 5 minutes before spraying. Here's the result...still smeary, but not quite as bad. So...if you didn't know...now you do!
I made a new label, didn't starch it, and sewed it on the baby quilt for Pearl.
