Sharpie Saves The Day!!! (or atleast the embroidery design!)

I am in the process of stitching out the blocks for AnitaGoodesign’s Christmas Town.  I had stitched out 11 blocks and was working on my 12th block.  Part of the process is to tack down fabrics and trim away the excess.  Well…… I forgot to trim part of one piece of fabric before moving on. …
