When Life Gives You Snow...



You do some snow dyeing. I wish I had some blue because the yellow got eaten up by the pink again. I didn't have enough yellow left to make a strong enough dye to compete with the pink.


This time I used a round grate and that showed up on one piece.

I found these two strange faces when I ironed the fabrics that I dyed yesterday. That's the best thing about low water immersion dyeing. You never know what will turn up.

When life gives you snow, make snow dyes. I've done some dyeing, but it has been put away for a long time. You've inspired me to drag all the dyeing stuff out again. Thanks for posting such wonderful pictures.
