Gorgeous embroidery

The Chinese wear this drab indigo dyed clothing that is very traditional. It's the same pattern I remember my paternal grandmother wearing these clothes. Today they can dress up their drab clothing with gorgeous and intricately embroidered patches. Here they are being sold in the Sunday market. Looking back I should have bought some to embellish some of my clothes. It would have been fun. Someone once wrote, 'we regret not the trips we've taken but the ones we didn't' or put in another way 'we regret not the things we bought but the ones we didn't'.
