And so it begins.

I've never been so happy to see the first snows -- woohoo!  We only got a couple of inches last week, but I did scrape up enough of the white stuff, for two batches of snow dyeing.

 Fabric soaked, scrunched and laid on screens last week.

 Old plastic drawers (from those 'rolling organizers', you know --  the ones where the castors break as soon as you actually 'roll' them someplace...) for supporting old window screens. Fabric and snow in place, ready for some color!

 Now it's all about the wait.

 This old storm door screen is my favorite. 
I can dye 8-10 generous yards on this screen over the double laundry sink.

End of the bolt -- only about 20 inches, but so pretty!

Got a few inches last night, so back to it for me!

Another mystery block from Paper Panache.
Isn't he adorable?

Looking good! But I have to say, I'm a little jealous....we aren't suppose to get any snow this year in Texas! Thanks for sharing and I'll be watching with envy!

Thank you.
I'm taking my time this year and planning my colors a bit.
But you never know what you'll get so it's still pure fun at the end of the process!
