Both the stitch pattern and color make me think of blackberries. I know. It looks blue. It isn't. It's a deep shade of purple. I took several photos in different places, in different light, with and without a flash and I can't get it to show the real color. The photo of blackberries was taken a few years ago in mid-August It'll be a few months yet before the blackberries are ripe!
