Black & White Crayons, Finished
For all you quilters under say, 59, and those of you who DON'T wear bifocals, you can stop reading right now.
For the rest of you who remember when the first man went up into space, who probably wear bifocals and have a touch of arthritis... You all know how hard (practically impossible) it is to hand sew something black with black thread. I could barely see what I was doing, and for a lot of the time, I just guessed. If any members of the quilt police find fault, they can kiss my richly upholstered derrière. One of my most fervently held beliefs is that craftspeople need to leave the evidence of their hand in the work they do. We are not machines, and our work should not look like it was machine made.
