Dyeing again

Some years ago I bought lovey hand dyed merino/silk mix at the Creative Fibre Exhibition in Kerikeri. Now I have most of it used and special the flowers seemed to be very popular.

So I tried to re-creative that by painting a lovely merino/silk from Tally-Ho

Because I wanted to do more poppies with merino/silk and the sliver is also almost gone,  I mixed some red too. It still looks quite ok when it was wet.

But now that it is dry

it is definitely more orange than poppy red. Well let's try again to make a more "poppy red" one and then I might mix them and it will look alright hopefully.
