do you ever wish?

I am suffering a crisis of confidence.  I can dye fabric.  I haven't for a few months, but how hard can it be to return to something I have been doing for years.  It seems it can be very hard.
My lovely pale lemon cotton poplin (3.5 metres) is bright yellow.  Sigh. 

I know that if I had wanted bright yellow, most of the dye would have rinsed out and I would have wishy washy.  This blooming fabric will not pale.

I see a large yellow project in my future.

** I now do have a lovely pale (ish) lemon piece of fabric.  My quilt will be backed in exactly the right colour.  However I do have a scrummy bright yellow and orange piece of fabric to play with.

You love yellow! I refuse to believe this is not fabulous without a photo...

Sounds like sod's law/murphy's law to me! If it's something very important, I will mess it up. if not, all goes swimmingly.
