First off…a needle and thread (last Friday’s answer)

One of these is a vintage linen hemp grain sack worth $80 and the other is linen burlap purchased new recently for $8.50 (30″ x 36″) and I added the stripe. Can you tell which is which? Yes, I suppose you can but don’t you think they are quite similar, certainly more than the price would indicate? And if I washed the one it’d be even better. It’s actually for rug hooking and it’s what I used for my two newest patterns. I just love these textiles. See more here and here. (added note: the top photo is the vintage piece)
