i’m obsessed

with making poppies…
here is the next batch of 86
batch 2
i keep making them and throwing them in the dye pot, adding a smidge more dye if they come out too light. i’m trying to get all of them done so i can put my dye pot away and use my stove again. i haven’t had any success in the past with storing dye once it’s made up, so i’m just trying to get them all done. of course it would have been better if i finished all of them before starting to dye, but i’m not that organized! πŸ˜‰

poppies for remembrance
