Gift from Japan – Oriental Fabrics

thumb o My brother Lance and his wife, Atsuko live in Japan. Her mother, Mrs. Mori, sewed. When Atsuko came to the states she brought me a tote bag full of different oriental fabrics that her mother sent me. Some are very traditional. Some are coarse woven and some smooth. There are some that are hand-dyed and some of the indigo blues. I think there are some antique obi and kimono fabrics. There is even a child’s full kimono with a red tie belt. It was extremely nice of her to think of me and very nice of Atsuko to wag them across the world.Fabric 1 See blog post: https://jimgatling.wordpress.com/2011/06/06/came-home-to-a-surprise-japanese-fabric-scrap-quilt-1/ and post: https://jimgatling.wordpress.com/2012/01/26/surprise-surprise-surprise-some-all-the-way-from-japan/ for the different things she has sent me. Thank you, Mrs. Mori. I am honored that you would think of me.oriental fabric 2
