|18 Trame colors in the bottom of the box|
There are most of the medium shades of the color families in my collection - the most used when you grab for a thread.
Accompanying these in the box are an assortment of useful threads for 17th century embroidery as well as a few 'Frostings Bonus' items that allow me to release a few small projects without you looking for that really hard

The first new sets of thread to mention is the two new silk gimp threads in the two olive colors that were introduced to expand the greens. We started with a set of soie paris that links to the 199 color in the current green palette and included themin the stumpwork course. Then a set of silk purls were made in the two colors and now the silk gimps!! This gives those making grasses and trees another set of textures in greens to use which provides a really needed break from the bright green set to add depth to your scenes.

My next post will complete the list of items in the box, going over the metal threads that are in it.
Now I have to head off to the last college visit. Pretty tired of walking all over campuses!
