I really enjoyed the black theme
and decided to play it up.

I had plenty of black and white print scraps left over from other projects so I got them out and had some fun.

The musical note fabric comes from Joann Fabrics. The last time I was in there they still had it. Look for it by the quilting fabrics.

The location for the transfer purchase is below. This lady has lots of goodies.
