This was the view from my window this morning. We had had snow fall overnight. Being by the sea the rest of the country seems to get it before us. As picturesque as it is I hate it. Everything grinds to a halt and as we live at the top of a very steep hill we are virtually marooned until it decides to thaw.
There has been a lot of talk recently on the CQ yahoo site about snow dyeing and this seemed like an ideal opportunity to have a go. Below are photographs of the fabrics squashed into colanders, covered with snow and dye poured on top. These are then left until the snow has melted through the fabric and taken the dye with it.
If the colanders are placed in a container to collect the snow melt dye it can be used again by adding a little salt solution and soda ash solution. Tomorrow I will take pictures of the fabric results. If I say it myself they are looking good.
