We woke up to 5 inches of snow on the ground, with more on the way. We'd planned to visit The Lizard's mom but weren't willing to battle bad roads, bad weather AND ski traffic.
Last year, I'd attempted snow-dyeing for the first time. I was anxious to try again, but I needed a significant snowfall. Our total accumulation of 9-10 inches was exactly what the doctor ordered!
I tried something new this time, too. I dyed one hank of thread, and some leftover undyed fabric scraps from my homemade batik dress.
We braved the storm in Waterton Canyon while we waited for the snow (on the fiber) to melt and dye to set. (The snow outside still hasn't melted yet, but that means I can keep dyeing!!!)
We came home to gorgeous wintery blues! (So named by The Lizard.)
And then I was so excited, I decided to do it again!
One. More. Time.
I think this fabric is just calling out to be made into a quilt!
