*NEW* Primitive hand tinted jute/cotton ric rac

I bought this great jute (sisal) ric rac 1/2" trim. It has a strand of cotton in the center of it. So.....I hand tinted it! Did you think I would leave it plain?? Well...I do sell it plain and untinted....
but I also did several colors and love how they turned out.
I did Cocoa, Golden Yellow, Pale Green. Dark Green, Red and Brown and listed them in my ebay store. I hope to show some finishes in the near future with this great new trim. I need to quit doing new projects and finish some of the old ones.

Just a quick post for today with my new trims.......back to the drawing board. Have a great week!

41 New Floss colors added this week

Another very busy week at The Motto Sampler Shoppe is coming to an end. I just listed 32....yes 32 new colors yesterday to my ebay store inventory.*****AND 9 MORE TODAY! 41 new colors.
 From Rosey Beige, Taupes, Caramel Browns, LOTS of Oranges, Pumpkins and Peaches, gorgeous autumn colors, a few Pinks, Lavender, Purples and Greens. Boy do I need to sit and have a break...........and the dye pot will be going all weekend. Of course you will have to be patient and wait a bit to see those colors. From the time they are dyed, dried, shipped out to be counted on cards and then shipped back takes a couple weeks. I also need to dye more trims this weekend. And of course...we will give a lot of these new colors away on my birthday with the floss give-away. Getting anxious?

At the moment...I am going to sit and put my feet up. Maybe get back to a pattern I am working on...there's ALWAYS a pattern in the works, isn't there?!

I hope all of you are having a great week and are enjoying your summer.
