Swap and the gift of fabrics

A few months ago, my co-worker's husband mom, moved in with them after living in her home for 30 years. My co-worker affectionately called her "Mom". She is one of us. A wonderful sewer who created beautiful masterpieces. Just imagine if the Internet was available when Mom was sewing. Mom no longer sews, and this morning my co-worker gave me some of mom's fabrics.This was an honor (although i would have like to be the first one in line for the goodies (LOL) ). I never met mom, however; just looking at her fabrics i can tell that she sewed beautiful clothes and she is a lady of style. The fabric gift bag had knits, wools, jersey knits, linens and a precious piece of green Ultrasuede. Here are the photos:

Take a look at this, these fabrics will fit nicely into my current swap- black and white.

This fabric is a knit. It has dark brown and silver stripes, its beautiful

This one is similar in feel to a jersey knit. Take a look at the geometric design, beautiful, black, white and red

Thank you Lauren for this wonderful gift. It will be put to good use
