Chinese Silk




I basted hexies last night! If you follow me on Facebook, you know that yesterday Daughter 2 got engaged to be married to her boyfriend! After all the excitement died down, Hubby and I relaxed, watched a move, and I basted hexies. Ahhhh..... nice evening......



I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that a friend visited me from China. Her visit reminded me of some gorgeous silk she brought me years ago when home for a visit. I've been saving to use for something special (though I wasn't sure what).

While she was here I was working on my special necktie project. Suddenly I had a light bulb moment! (Don't you love having a light bulb moment?!) -----This special silk would work beautifully in my necktie project!!!!!!!!!!

This fabric is the real deal - not a reproduction! Gorgeous color, print, and sheen. And look at the backside of the fabric below -




The back is totally different from the front! Not sure how they do this, but both sides are so pretty. I'm using the red as the 'right side' for this project, but I think I'll have enough fabric left to use the 'back side' for something special too.
