2011 Snow Dyeing–Part 2

I ironed the 4 yards of fabric that I snow dyed yesterday.  Here they are.

 

They don’t look so great all together… but separately…

 

 

 

 

Next are close ups so you can see the broken glass effect caused by the dye that gets so cold in the snow.  Red/blue:

Purple/teal:

Red/yellow:

And Brown:

 

I really overdid it yesterday, so I took it easy today.  It was bitter cold and snowing again…. another good day for watching the birds.

They were in constant motion today.

 

 

 

We need to get to the feed store in the next day or two, we are almost out of sunflower seed.  We have gone through 50 pounds this month!  Fat birds?  Or just LOTS of birds?  Maybe some of each.

    The snow dyes are excellent! Love the effect. I think the birds are just COLD! It takes a lot of seed to stay warm.

    Snow dyeing looks amazing! I live in Ontario, Canada and we have snow. Finally something good to do with the stuff! Interesting that your McKay is spelled the same as ours. Do you have an interest in genealogy?

    Stay Warm, Barb

      Barb, yes I do genealogy. My late husband’s family (McKay’s) came from Scotland on one of the first boats to St. Mary’s County, MD. Are we related?

    Gosh, that’s one of history’s mysteries… I had to look up my husband’s family history – his great grandfather, William McKay, (son of Archibald and Margaret), was born in Scotland in 1842 and had his 1st child in Canada with his Canadian born wife in 1873. How did he get here??? I only know they settled in McKillop Township, Huron County, Ontario, Canada. That’s on the shore of Lake Huron – one of the Great Lakes that we share with you, our American neighbours. You could draw a relatively straight line from where we are in Ontario here, through New York and Pennsylvania, to Maryland. We”ll never know!
    Greetings, Barb McKay
