Enough to try out snow-dyeing.  There are lots of tutorials on the web,but this one seems to be the most straightforward.  So, wrapped up like a baboushka, I slipped about on the snow last night  after work to set up two trays with two different colourways.  I modified the technique a bit by putting another layer of snow on top of the squirted dye, and left it outside overnight.  This morning, 


a fair amount of melting, but still enough snow to justify leaving it outside today.  Whatever the results  this will be an interesting experiment.


  1. You too!! One of the other blogs I follow mentioned this the other day.

    There's enough here to give it a go, but I got side tracked and fed the birds instead. And then did a bit of traditional patchworking.

    Await the results with excitement!

  2. Brrrr, but it looks like fun, look forward o the results

  3. Ooohhh! I thought about it, then thought I should have prepared more for snow (by buying dye / trays / fabric, so went back inside and had some hot chocolate instead. Looking forward to seeing your results, though!


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
