I got a surprise envelope in the mail over the weekend. Stacy Houston was looking over my blog and saw my confusion on one of the samples she sent me, so she sent me some color swatches of the thread she thinks she sent me. It was enough for me to make a positive identification of the thread color. My guess was off by 1 number. Here is a repost of the thread she sent me.
The thread is King Tut, Color 973. The pattern is from the April 1974 Workbasket.
Stacey also sent me some more King Tut in other colors to play with.
Thank you Stacey.
