Isn't this Weird?

I scanned this from my most recent Michaels ad:






Note the Cotton Ease colors, yet it has the new Cotton Ease label. I got excited and figured Lion had added some of the "old" colors, but nope-now, how the heck did they get a pic of the old colors with the new label? Weird.

I actually saw those two colors at my Michaels yesterday... I think maybe the coloring in the ad isn't exactly perfect though. the yellow is what they call maize, I think -- it's a little more muted than the old pineapple, but similar. and the pink I saw looked a lot like that, but not quite as neon as the old bubblegum!

[I gave in and bought $20 worth of new ce yesterday too, bad me!]

I have both Pineapple and Bubblegum here and the colors are much more muted then the "old" colors!

Lion just likes to mess with our heads.

I'm guessing they're "Maize" and "Berry"... possibly with funny lighting or poor photography.

Very tricky, it may have been to entrance people with a nostalgia for the past. Maybe their ink was not enough lol! I hate when what you see advertised and the product are not the same, even if by mistake.

I love the blue, I think they call it "lake" and the colors are so in tune with Mission Falls stuff!
