Delightful Tropics

Thank you too much. sounds like thank you tomas in Bislama
The colors of the tropics used for traditional dresses mother hubbards

 Brand new hand crank sewing machine. Look closely at the name (singere). I saw these in several shops in Port Vila.
 Great colors and traditional prints in the markets.

Food leaves for cooking in and serving on gorgeous flowers for the eye.
All waiting on the docks to go out to an island resort. We had a relaxing break and enjoyed the people of Vanuatu

Made fabric for the month of June. 15 Minutes Play is challenging me. Ever expanding horizons. These pieces of made fabric equal about a meter of fabric all laid out. Time to use some of this fabric in a quilt block or two.

Enjoy your weekend . Terry

Welcome home! Those colours and fabrics are so bright and beautiful. I love the photo of the flowers, and leaf weaving! Your scrap fabric blocks are fabulous, looking forward to seeing what you do with those.

Terry, those fabric look scrumptious. Hope you brought some back. My first king size quilt was made with blouse fabric from New Guinea and it's going strong after 20 years later - sounded like you had a nice trip - Hugs Nat
