It's here!

A picture says it all, I am told!  Does this explain just what happened over night?

No strong winds, so no blizzard, but a nice gentle snowfall. Perfect for my snow dyeing day!  And better yet, I have power!  :-)


I love the way the snow draped over my evergreen bush.  As you can see, it's still snowing lightly!



BUT...



out came the shovel, and I got to work.
Not clearing the sidewalks silly, I am shoveling for my snow dyeing!




Last time I did this, I experimented with putting a piece of fabric under the grate to sop up all the left over dye.  I really can't say I remember the outcome, but I thought I would try it again. Worse case scenario, I can always over-dye it next summer!





I've made up my little fabric bundles.










Mixed up my dyes, and started to play!











I saw this one on LuAnn Kessi's blog. It really intrigued me!

You can see her snow dyeing extravaganza HERE .








          Snow cones, are all I can think of!






As you can see my fabric is starting to peek thru!!




Now I have to play the waiting game!! Patience has never been my virtue!!

  3. Just catching up on all your latest projects and posts, and boy, have you had fun! Can't wait to see the results of the snow-dyeing -- we haven't had much to write home about here when it comes to snow this winter, so I'll just have to go gaga over your bounty.
