I must be using the ceramic pencils wrong.  I break the "lead" constantly.  Didn't know they had black.  I have used yellow and white. 


Sue:  The wallpaper seam that like a brayer?

This is a fun topic.  Since I've just gotten back into quilting I have several favorite tools that were't available 30 (or so) years ago.  My number one favorite is the computer! Wow, how Electric Quilt beats graph paper!!! And I've even gotten a computer for my longarm. 


Now, number two is the rotary cutter; I used to think my electric scissors were wonderful (not any more).


Number three is a wallpaper seam roller to quickly press seams.  Why that never occurred to me before I'll never know.
