Mooncakes + Silk

My Dad has been over in Beijing on a business trip, he arrived home with lots of wonderful things for us.


We ate Mooncakes for morning tea this morning while looking at the photos he’d taken which he’d made into a super slideshow and opened our gifts.


I was very lucky, he brought back 3 1/2 metres of gorgeous silk for me to make something with. I’m not sure what I’ll make yet, perhaps a summer nightie and gown.



And look at this exquisite embroidery, the colours are just beautiful.


It’s a gorgeous embroidered silk scarf/shawl, beautifully packaged in a lovely box.


I think I’ll put China on my long list of places to visit one day!
