I can see

the threads on Black fabric. Its a miracle to me. LOL I bought this new Little House design and my sister friend Melissa gave me the greatest idea. She thought it might look nice stitched on black like a chalkboard design in a hornbook frame. What a great idea, I thought. But sadly I can never stitch on black, I have tried, I have used the white cloth or white paper on my lap and just can't see on it. Melissa then gave me another great idea. Try a tap light!! Put a tap light on your lap and you will be able to see the threads. OMG its a miracle. I got one for $1.00 in the dollar tree store and its amazing. I am sure that others had heard of this before but I never did so I am so very excited about it. Melissa,you are incredible, thank you so much, you always have such wonderful ideas. So if you are like me and always wanted to try stitching on a dark color, this is such a great idea. Please try it, it works.
