The fabric is really a bright purple. Of course it is dark up here so pictures are not the best for true colors. This set of gifts is the first time I have used Weeks Linens. I love the colors but it seems like it is fuzzy. This is the third piece I have used and so far they all do it.
Yes, these are the threads from last years projects so i decided I would empty the jar to start over for all the new projects or rather new old projects for this year. I love looking at the threads remembering the fun projects they were part of. The jar is one I found in a little shop up here. It is actually the bottom of a older cheese grater jar. I like using old things in new ways.
Hope you have a great stitchy day.
