That sounds kind of like a movie title, doesn't it? ("The Last of the Batiks") I ordered some batik fabrics from Connecting Threads this past week and they arrived today. They have just recently started carrying batiks, so I was a bit wary, but am very pleasantly surprised. These are beautiful fabrics. They have a nice feel to them and the colors and patterns are just spectacular (the pic doesn't do them justice). I was concentrating on the blues, greens, reds, and purples, but I can tell now that I've seen them that I'm going to HAVE to go back for more. Love them!!!
