He spent some time in Nagpur and the wife of a friend sent a present for me.
It is a woven shawl he said. A typical cloth from Gujarat, a state in western India.
|There is a little mirror embroidered in|
using mustard coloured thread.
I learned that technique in a workshop
I took years ago given by Judy Martin.
I like the little mirrors sewn in. They remind me of stars twinkling in the night sky. I like the tassels edging the top and the bottom.
|Some tassels are mustard and blue and some are red and blue.|
I wore it last night for dinner as it was a little cool out. It is such a special gift.
