More snow

We had a little more snow this morning. It's still freezing but that shouldn't last very long anymore.

Here are some results of the snow dyeing experiments I did last week.
The colours are not very deep. I guess I didn't let the fabric cure long enough. Below are two pictures of the fabric before washing.
Except for the little red spots, I rather like these kind of  flower patterns.
The other results were disappointing.
I must admit that I was a little careless about the preparations. But that's ok, it was a nice experiment  and the fabrics will be printed or overdyed.
If you want to see really nice snow dyed fabrics, you should visit Julies' blog, here.  Btw, she is responsible for tempting me to do these experiments. Merci Julie!

About fabric printing, I plan to make another quilt with my "wagashi" leftovers.

Your snow prints have such a lovely translucent look. It's like looking through water!

c'est vrai que le contrast n'est pas pareil sur tous tes tissus teints, mais ce flou est extra! je suis certaine de les trouver bientôt dans un de tes quilts.

Your snow dying looks almost like hexagonal quilt patterns, I like the way it gently colours the fabric, especially on the last one. Looking forward to seeing the next quilt.

I like the interesting texture from your snow dyeing. Thanks for including the link so that we could read more about it.

I see a lot of potential for those snow dyes! Too bad I don't have such wonderful snow here in s. Louisiana!!
