Dear Cecilia-

I *think* the List had a discussion about how backsides of historical
needlework weren't always gorgeous and exact.Or was that on another 

Joan Edwards (former Keeper of Textiles at the Museum of Costume,  Bath) in
her little book on  blackwork says that the backsides of items done in
blackwork  were often rather sloppy. What a relief! <g>
