Second try.

I did another batch of fabrics but they are still not as dark as I hoped.The blue comes through more strongly than the brown .They are darker than here ,as the flash lightened the image.The silk and the silk velvet take the dye beautifully.I am not sure if I 'll do any more or just add in some dark organza and chiffons.Before I get to that I have to do some sampling.

I sometimes think we need to do a course in dyeing before we do anything else!! Sometimes it can be so frustrating not being able to get just what you want.

This is not making it any easier for me to find the get-up-and-go to make a start on dyeing! The thought of having to do it more than once is off-putting as is reading how hard other students found it to get a really good black. I think your colours are gorgeous Jenn.
