A bit of this and a bit of that...

Today I finished of piecing my Block Lotto blocks for January. I'm pretty pleased with them. I particularly like the lime green and the thinner sticks.
And thanks to Angela, I did a little (well quite a lot actually) of this....
Snow dyeing...


It was great fun. I left this outside for the day, and as it barely got above freezing I moved it into the garage overnight. This morning it was still pretty snow covered, though the dye had worked its way down pretty much. So I moved it inside onto the draining board. (unfortunately I don't have a utility so we had to work around it )
The fabric has all been rinsed, washed and ironed now, but as it's late I'll get some pictures in the morning and post the results. I'm really quite pleased :)

Those lotto blocks look super. I love all the possibilities of placement. And the snow dying, that is very interesting. What are your plans for the dyed fabrics?

Love the lotto blocks. Dyeing looks great so far. I will reveal my snow dyeing later today as well. Must be the only person in my family to be upset that we didn't have any more snow as I had more plans for dyeing!

Your lotto blocks look great. The snow dyeing sounds interesting and I'll look forward to seeing your "new" fabrics.

Your blocks are cute! Your snow dyeing looks interesting but messy. It will be interesting to see your final result. Fun stuff! Happy quilting!
