"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

My Batik has arrived!

After some nail-biting stressful weeks of wondering about the postal system, my batik fabric has finally arrived! Yeah! Latree was getting stressed about it not showing up, the postal service told her it would take 10 days! Well, I think they must have put the package on a slow boat instead of a fast plane! The letter is dated 3-28 and it finally got here 5-3! We were out playing in the mud on Saturday and they couldn't deliver it because I had to sign for it. I went to the post office on Monday bright and early to get it!Now the question is what shall I do with it?
The material is folded in the above photos.
Here it is all unfolded..... Scott didn't want Emmy to touch him and she kept kissing him, thus the grumpy face!Photo by Scott.Photo by EmmaLece.

I love it. You must already have a plan for it. Skirt?

I wish I had time to sew these days ... I used to quilt all the time, but now days, survival is main focus ... hee hee.

That is gorgeous!! You could do a skirt for yourself and still have enough to use in a quilt.

Those kids are great photographers!

♡ A beautiful piece of fabric!

At least a skirt or a sari or mumu or something like that, it's beautiful.

KATE said...

Wow, do you have any idea what you'll do with it? I would throw some ideas out there, but I don't sew, & I suck at that kind of thing!
Sorry, but I can't wait to see what you create with it!

Mom2My6Kids said...

Ooh! I love it! Definately something decorative. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Wendi said...

It is beautiful, but don't look here for ideas.
I. do. not. sew.
Even buttons.
I will look forward to seeing what you do with it!

Maya said...

love the print,are you going to wear it ike a wrap?

carrie & troy keiser said...

I don't sew much either... it's looking like, I'll hem up the sides and call it a skirt/wrap. I actually can't bring myself to cut it! :)

How fun! I'd have a hard time deciding what to do with it, too! I'd want to make sure I chose the best thing(s) to make with it! Ha! That's why I have such a hard time with gift cards. Too many choices and I don't want to waste it. I guess I'm crazy!
