Japanese Fabric - red

Here's a photo of the red fabric that my friend's mom gave to me. They are all so pretty. Perhaps I feel a valentine quilt coming on.

If you love Japanese animation, you have to love My Neighbor Totoro.

My husband sent me a link to this adorable story of this kid who accidently dropped his stuffed Totoro doll down a storm drain, and what several dedicated adults did to try and save him.

It's called Don't Let Totoro Die, We Can Wash Him!

Those red fabrics are wonderful! I am so jealous!

My kids & I have been Japanese movie buffs for years (Hayao Myazaki---my kids watch ANYTHING he creates). My Neighbor Totoro is one of absolute favorites...

So lovely fabrics! Wish could steal them from you :) Also Totoro animation, which produced by Studio Ghibli, is my #1 fav ever. There's more great anime movies made by this wonderful studio.
