I have spent the morning trying to pick up my husband from the airport and after much toing and froing we are home. And, all the washing is done. Plus I have a lovely new porcelain plate.
The card that came with it said that according to legend from ancient time, the Vietnamese people are descendants of a Fairy and a Dragon. This image is a combination of dragon and phoenix, which represents the combination of dragon and fairy. Because the Vietnamese Nation was formed from many different ethnic groups, these are represented around the edge of the plate. I think this is going to be the inspiration for a new quilt.
