Colour Variations

Apart from an insatiable fascination with colour, one of the main reasons I started dyeing by hand was to try to reproduce the sort of colour variations I see around me in the natural world. I always try to have some flowers for the display table at my dyeing workshops to emphasise that point. Here's one from last weekend.
I have to do some more unpacking today. If I don't keep going in a determined way, I can imagine myself still surrounded by boxes in a couple of months time. I don't want that. But I'm going to have to break it up with some creative work, or I won't make it. So, I'll tantalise myself with the prospect of reproducing something like the colour of this rose today.
