I love black and white. I always have. I love the extreme contrast between the two. My son loves black and white too. He stares at it with deep concentration and it makes him talkative sometimes too. I will do all of our nurseries with black and white incorporated.
Here is a black felt rose I made for a friend with a white leaf, stitched with black thread.
I've been practicing making roses and I think I've perfected a method. I can make a tight rose bud and just change one thing to make it a more open rose like this one. Fun!
