silk/rayon velvet turned lilac, wow

look at this, can't believe the colour:

since the wool and silk have not taken this colour, it has to be the rayon that turned lilac with the eucalyptus leaves and pods


I just can't get over it, not my favourite colour, but a delight no less............
Well, you guessed it, there will be a copied bundle on the boild pretty soon, to see if I can repeat this colour.

I know India writes and tells of this, but I just can not get over the fact, that the same plant (Eucalyptus we are talking about, don't know so much with the other plants) can give you from nothing to magic, and the colour changes with seasons, combinations and so on.
For somebody like me, who would prefer some prediction, its FRUSTRATING.... but also humbling, to not be in charge for once................

Better get back to work then.....................
