Snow dyeing at the retreat

Getting ready to dye! We were all dressed up in plastic bags to protect our winter coats.  This time we left the containers outside overnight as we didn't have a place to let them thaw, much less be rinsed out in the convent.  It was a lot of fun, it was snowing, and not too cold.

Below are pictures from my piece.  I had supported the fabric with a piece of carpet underlay and in the second picture you will see that it has left an imprint.  Now how to figure out how to do that all the time!
The colours used were Forest Green, Golden Yellow and Black.  Hmm, you'd never have guessed, right!

I love the image of you all lined up in the snow. I wonder what non-quilters would think you were up to??!!!
