My sister Anne brought this present back for me from her and her husband’s recent vacation to Costa Rica. It is a large bed spread sized piece of beautiful designed fabric.
She said you could sew something from it or use it as a “hippie wall hanging.” Oh I laughed at that, a throwback to our younger years!
Speaking of throwbacks, she also gave me this beautiful hand dyed batik fabric she brought home from Africa circa 1990. She said “I am sure you can find a way to use it more than I have in the last 20+ last years.” I haven’t measured it yet but there has to be over 5 yards of it!
Isn’t it beautiful?
She even still had the merchant’s card with it. Mon Francais est tres pauvre so I went to google translation for some help!

Anne went to Cape Verde, an island off the coast of Africa for a college study abroad program and she would call home collect to ask me what was happening on “Beverly Hills 90210.” This was in that the pre-cell phone days when long distance calls were charged by the minute, international calls being a small fortune. Yikes! to think we thought it was worth the major moolah to talk about that between continents!
I can’t wait for the perfect project to use it for (perhaps a quilt for her and her husband?) If you have any thoughts of what you would make from either of these fabric, I would love to hear them.
