Fabric from Ghana arrived!

My boss, Lyndon, goes to Ghana every year.  While he is there he tries to bring me back fabric.  This year he had a little guidance since he figured out how to send pictures of the fabric stalls so that I would have a little idea of what I wanted.  Here is what he brought back for me.  The pink fabric I am going to use on mom's mini wall hanging.  She loves pink and wanted flowers so I thought it would be terrific.I don't know what I will use the other fabric for.  He did bring me back some Kente cloth which is terrific and totally unexpected.  It's very much in demand  so I was thrilled with that. We had a nice conversation going down memory lane with the one pattern which reminds us of the Dashiki's (sp?) of the 70s.  I even had a tunic top that I wore with almost an exact match to it.  Of course being I didn't call it that since being white and raised in a rural community I didn't even know what a Dashiki was/is.  I just thought it was a great pattern and all the kids in the 70s wore clothes like that.  :)  Lyndon said that the Dashiki's are making a come back.  I guess it is to be expected since I've also seen bell bottom pants legs making a limited comeback.  LOL.


Enough of my pratter.  Here is your peek into my fabric from Ghana.
