I was putting together a giftie and kept finding things that I didn't recognize. What I did recognize was that I hardly have a square yard of anything left and need a Dyefest badly.

The bag was fixing to explode when I opened the microwave so I vented it and then took the contents straigt to the washing machine - a mixed load was waiting. Here's the results:
