Snow!!


I remember having them growing up in Virginia, but I can't remember one since I've lived in North Carolina...a White Christmas came to us!! It poured all day and through the night. Beautiful!!

The boys spent a good bit of yesterday out in it sledding, building snow forts, and having a snowball fight between our yard and the neighbors to the side. I stayed in and made hot chocolate :)  And...preparations...

Today it's my turn to play in the snow!
Results in a few days.....I think I'm going to like this winter. We rarely get this much snow and never this early! I'm thinking I'll get a good bit of snow dyeing done this winter.

Never thought of that one...maybe snow ice cream. Be sure to post a sample of the end product!

We've been thinking of you, wondering how you survived the babysitting-at-the-beach! I can't wait to see the newly dyed fabrics either!

Happy New Year, Karen!

Your pieces look great. Have you tried it where the liquid drains off the fabric instead of sitting in it? Also when you wash out most of the xtra dye will have been taken out of the fabric with the liquid below. Then when you rinse you won't need as many rinseouts. Just trying to be helpful I wrote the article in the Quilting Arts magazine Oct/Nov 2009.
