Orange and purple
And then there is this. A little bit hippie, but who doesn't have an inner hippie, huh? And it is really, really lovely. A piece of fabric from Peru where they went on holiday in April last year. Do you know anything about this sort of fabric/textile? I just did a quick Google search, but didn't find anything. Maybe if I look a bit harder... It feels quite warm and sort of woolly, so maybe it's alpaca?
It is about 3-4" squared. I wasn't sure what to use it for at first, because I don't want to cut into it, but as I was holding up earlier I suddenly had the idea to make a 'quilt' with it. Because it is quite warm in itself, I will only have the front and back layers.
It won't be the largest quilt ever, but it sure will be colourful, just you wait!
