Pusan, South Korea. Everyday, after morning classes were over, Miss Che and I would leave the school where we tought English and walk to the Chinese restaurant district nearby.

All the restaurants looked alike on the outside, with banners and signs to entice the hungry.

At the one we liked best I order noodles with black bean sauce, my favorite. The delivery boy always parked right in front of the door.

My technique, black line applique, is simple. Draw the design on the background fabric and color in the shapes with fabric. Sometimes it's more effective to leave part of the design "uncolored."
