FABULOUS FABRIC FROM NEW ZEALAND

Words can not express how touched I am about receiving this fabric. I have a friend in Samoa that just went to New Zealand and this is what I just received in the mail. I would do the dance but I am so humbled with gratitude towards my sweet friend for thinking of me.



This fabric is awesome...



Totally awesome!!!



Words can not express how I feel....but be sure that I might rub a hole in this fabric before I get something made from it.

I love those colours Barb. I often wonder the charges for over seas postings! But these would be worth it!
Is that a dark orange in the last one?
