Snow Dye

With all the snow we had this week I decided to take an advantage and try some snow dying. I have to admit that I'm no expert! I've only done this once before...

So... I prepared my fabric. Piled some snow on top of it with my dye powder. I used two different shades of yellow and one blue.

I wasn't the happiest with my results...

So I threw it back into my soda ash to soak, re-folded it... this time I used brown and applied it directly on the fabric. This way I could kinda sorta control where the color went.

Much better!!!

This is without the light coming through it.

During the first dye I had put some scraps of fabric in the bottom of the drip pan. I'm pleased with results!

Snow

We don't usually get very much snow here near the Washington coast....  but when we do...

It makes our driveway a slippery mess!

Drafts & Crafts

Steam Donkey, one of the local micro breweries, had their first Drafts & Crats night last.  Beer and hot gluing! Talk about fun!!! Luckily no one hot glued themselves to their project...  

My Holloween wreath found a home on the fireplace.
