Never got around to snow dyeing on Wednesday. I came to my senses and realized I just had a little bit of time to see what would happen with those little plexiglass cut-outs. And the reason I hauled out the dye to begin with was that I needed some more navy blue for a background I am working on. But- there wasn't much pfd fabric left in my stash. I tried a 50 percent cotton/ linen blend from Kaufman that I had.
The piece on the left is a fat quarter of velvet. So pretty. The others aren't quite dark enough for what I needed.
These are the pieces that I used c-clamps on with the plexiglass cut-outs. I only had a few c-clamps. Not enough to make a big batch but something I will definitely do this summer when I can make more of a mess. Then, I had tried wrapping a piece of plastic pipe. Of course, without reading about how to do this.
Nice result on the one end. I just didn't have the pipe placed in the right kind of container nor did I even come close to the true technique. Another technique to put on my list for summer.
I added a little sunshine to the day in the form of one of my quilt tops from vacation and machine stitched away. Bright colors definitely help on a snowy day!

I heavily quilted this one just to work on fine machine quilting. I now truly appreciate those machine quilters that do lots of fine line work-this is truly an art. It reminded me to schedule an eye doctor appointment.
I love the fine lines! Now what else to do with them?
Happy Sewing, my friends!
