Lookee What I Got!!

My dear neighbor, Ami, is from Japan. She had a stash of silk Kimono fabrics stuck in a bag that her mom sent her when she moved to America. She said she was bored, and her mom sent the fabrics for her to make bags, or whatever, with. Well, she never did anything with them, and so they sat. Well, she gave them to ME yesterday! What a treasure. I plan to make some sort of wallhanging, not sure exactly how or what pattern, if a pattern at all. I don't want to cut or throw away ANY of it, but I'll have to square some of them up, so I will have a little bit to toss. I might just sew them all together and call it good. :) Aren't they purty???
These are a couple of my favorites. The pink one has little fans embossed on it. I just really like the flowery one. I'll post it when I get it figured out and done, SOMEDAY. :)

Mmmm. The plum blossoms are pretty. And those chop symbols (in the ovals on the bottom) - are those stamped on there or part of the print? Very nice!

Gorgeous! my mind would be whirling from project ideas. I'm off to Tokyo in 3 weeks! My goal is to snap up as much fabric as I can find. Best!
