Thanks to Anne at The Flying Needle , the fabric has been found! Remember that I said it wasn’t Lemon Balm??? Well, guess what? 😉 It’s Lemon Balm color #35.
It’s a Fossil Fern by Benartex and I’m pretty sure it’s one of the discontinued ones. Of course! I could really use a little more to be able to finish my mystery sample. Isn’t that always the way it goes? For some reason, in my idiotic state, I didn’t think to save any tiny, little crumb of the selvage that has the info on it that I need. The part that I do have has this much info…and not an inch more. 😦 This scan isn’t even close to the correct color.
If I could find out the color name & number I think it might help me locate some. That’s why I’m asking you to find that old swatch card, dig in your stash, or look on the shelves of your shop to see if you can help. 1 yard would be great but I can get by with 1/2 yard. I’ll gladly pay or trade for it.
Here’s a larger pic. The color still isn’t quite right but it’s better than the scan. It does have some pale sage-greenish tones to it that you might not be able to see in this photo. It’s not Lemon Balm because that one is too bright and the green is much brighter than the green in my fabric.
I’m going to post a request at fabrics.net to see if anyone there can help. If you think you can help please leave a comment and I’ll get back to you asap.
