So here is the piece after I washed it and it seems to be all gone except just a bit toward the bottom. The threads that run from place to place on the back show through some but don't think I will sweat that. I am using diferent pinks and dark reds and a touch of orangy yellow which I do like. Reading other blogs, I see that some of the girls use iron on interfacing on the back of the fabric to stop the thread from shadowing through. I suppose there is no perfect way except to use heavier fabric. Anyway, I think this looks okay and I will forge ahead.
