Snow Dye Results and a New Year!

Just before the turn of the new year I snow dyed (previous post). There was a bit of a delay in photographing some of the results because on a whim we decided to go here for the last half of last week:

This was the view from the house on the Intercoastal Waterway on Oak Island, NC where we rang in 2011. Well, most of us. SOME of us decided they couldn't stay up! No not me...I was the liveliest one of the bunch. I won't name names... ;)

It was a nice get away even if the fish weren't biting.

Now that we've returned and I've washed, dried and ironed, I thought I'd post a few of my snow dye results. I think I dyed about 5 yards or so, so this is just a small sampling, but I LOVE how they turned out! Serendipitous dyeing is the most fun to me...usually the surprises are good ones. Aren't these yummy? Each one is unique...

This one reminds me a bit of this :)

 And one last thing to share that always makes me giggle when I drive by it...this is on the way to the beach. Click on the picture to see the unique offerings at this little shop. One of these times I'm going to have to stop there...

Happy New Year everyone! I hope that 2011 has lots of good things ahead!

We missed you last week while you were at Oak Island! I'm looking forward to this weekend though! Squeeeeee!!!! I can't wait!

I LOVE the snow dyes. They turned out so cool!

I really want to learn how to do this - although I don't get enough snow in my part of Canada, the mountains aren't far away so I could try it. Will you be posting a tutorial?
