A Gift from India
Getting to sleep was hard last night. All those lovely fabrics collected from different parts of India. Patchwork gypsy bag; Kantha stitch floor cushions and Pattu (a traditional dress of the local women of Himachal Pradesh, north part of India) This woollen fabric is woven in different colours and designs. It is thicker annd heavier than shawl. Women wear Pattu over their clothes and pin both ends with silver broaches. I was overwhelmed with all my presents (from my lovely mother) For now, I have stashed them away in my cupboard, but my mind I can't rest. I am already getting ideas.
