Wanda was making up her own batik 2 1/2" strip rolls to sell a couple of weeks ago and offering them to anyone who was interested. So I emailed her and told her my color preferences. I knew I would like whatever she sent because I like Wanda's taste in fabrics. Look at what I found when I opened the package.



I just love them! I didn't start collecting batiks until about 4-5 years ago so I missed out on many that were manufactured before that time. And, my collection is pretty meager which is why I was interested in Wanda's offer. Aren't they gorgeous?



What I want to know is how she was able to part with them. :)

I'm a total batik freak...although I don't use them exclusively. I think they look like art just fanned out so pretty like that.

I also love Wanda's choices too and often wonder how she can part with them too. Your strips are wonderful!

Yes they are! I think Wanda has a BIG supply!

Like VickiW said, I have a big supply, but now after selling all of those strips, I am down to quarter and half yards of a lot of the fabrics so I have just what I need for my own use now. Take 18 years of collecting batiks and it fills 15 shelves on my bookcases.

They are scrumptious, good enough to eat. Yummy.

I love the way you photograph your fabrics for the blog, Terri -- you could give lessons in doing this! You make them into such eye candy -- have fun creating with these strips!
