Silk packs to sell

Previously I had shown you about our dying day where we had dyed silk fabrics and ribbons etc. to sell at the Guild exhibition in two weeks time--well yesterday I packages some of the things into packs in colourways that will be handy for Crazy Patchwork and embroidery.
Each of the colourway items were dyed in one jar together so that they could be used together and it is amazing how different fabrics etc. take up the colours in different ways.



















The last two packets had Pumpkin Spice as one of the colours in it and it seems to have taken over but I rather like how they have turned out.










Now to pack all the silk ribbons and threads.
