Japanese silk listening

All of these fabrics are from Kimono scraps except the top middle center rectangle.I couldn't find the shade in those silks. The top's basted into a sandwich of harem cloth on the back and a piece of the finest antique silk in the middle. When I opened a sleeve seam I found this hidden treasure and listened to it with an open mind. I think this shy fabric wanted to be hidden again so it's inside and happy again.

Sewing lately

What if alien spaceships were square?
What if fish and chickens sang to the moon?
If dreams were a place?
Finally, this family came together...and a lurker.
