We had about 4" of snow so I did everything using instructions from " The Quilter "that had first
appeared in " Contemporary Quilt" 2010.
Then left the bucket in my garage until all the snow had melted, as I did not want any mishaps in the kitchen.
The proses has taken over a week but yesterday it was finally ready.
We still have snow and last night there was a heave frost.More snow due to-day but with luck next week will be better.
I am spending to-day working on some samples for the Young Quilters.
Enjoy your week end crafting.

I hope this will work.
I have just remembered last year buying some dyes to try snow dying.
Having found them I will have a go.
First I have to make up soda and salt solutions and them get snow from a clean place.
So off to do that now.
The bag is an extra made from the left over fabric.I hope my granddaughter likes them.
The forecast is it staying like this for the rest of the week.I am suppose to be going to a craft fair on Sunday but I think if it stays like this it will be cancelled.
I am going to try and put a video on my next blog, so by for now.

The family have gone home and will not be back until Easter.
When we all get together for my Mother's birthday.
I do my sewing and computing in my smallest bedroom so everything has to be put away.
The fabric above is a pale green ( photo dose not do justice ) I have enough fabric to make two dresses for my granddaughter .Thy will probably get made this week end.
Sew before Snow
We have a forecast of getting snow this week end,so I thought I would take some photos of the first flowers of the year before thy get covered. I do not clear the leaves as the black birds love to turn them over to find grubs to eat.
I will get my lunch before sewing again.
Enjoy your week end what ever you are doing.
