My dear friend Riana came back from her trip to Japan last week and brought me this great gift! She visited the Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival 2012 and came back with loads of wonderful goodies (needle-craft related and otherwise) which we never see on this side of the world.
This is part of a piece of printed cotton. It has a border of beautiful Japanese ladies dressed in their traditional clothes and hairdo's. Isn't it gorgeous?
The fabric has a fine texture which makes it even more wonderful. I need to find something to make with it where I don't have to cut it - it is too pretty!
She also brought us some sweets from Tokyo.
Neither her nor us knows what it is as we can't read Japanese, but that won't stop us from eating it.
What a wonderful gift. Thanks again, Riana!
