Re: [BKARTS] Tangled threads redux



Once, in a former life, when I, too was a weaver of fine hand-woven
wearables, I did a show where a woman came stomping through my booth, looked
at a price tag, and shouted out for all to hear:  "THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS AND
NOT A STITCH OF QUILTING ANYWHERE ON IT!"
    Clearly beauty is in the eye of the beholder, --or some such.
