It's The Color!

I can't get past the cover on this magazine. Absolutely love the poppy red and citrus green. I have some work to do getting the color just right in a batch of reed but this is my next challenge. I love any green but use this shade as much as I can in  in weaving. It looks great with chocolate brown, turquoise and even a dark plum. Reds are a bit of a guessing game when it comes to dying reed. It's usually a surprise when it comes out of the pot. I've been known to check the batch , add some blue to adjust the shade or some brown to tone it down. So, I have a bright green and poppy red basket to make. Haven't settled on the style of basket yet but I'm thinking...........
