Tablecloth


Here is a tie dyed table cloth that I bought in Xing Ping, a town near Yangshuo. There were lots of them for sale in both towns and my biggest regret is in not buying several of them. However, we were nearing our luggage weight limit so I had to limit myself to one. They were in various colors and designs but this was my favorite by far.

Wow and is that ever a beauty. It sounds like you had a wonderful trip (other than the sleeper bus).

Oh Joyce, it's beautiful. I'm not surprised you had to limit yourself to one. I would have been tempted to buy the lot and s*d the weight!

Wowza . . . that's a beauty - and a far cry from the 'hippy-dippy' pieces I made with Mom's old sheets back in the 70's *s*

That's tie dye? Incredible. It looks like the batiks they do in Indonesia.
