Snow Dyeing

I have been inspired by reading everyone else's attempts at snow dyeing.  I decided that my chance was now or in months so, on my way to church this morning, I looked for piles of snow.  All the rest of the winter snow is long gone but where snow was once piled many feet high, there are still small mounds remaining.

I guess the secret to snow dyeing is to put  your fabric in something where the snow and dye can drain through. So, I put some soda soaked fabric in the bottom of my wicker laundry basket, topped it with icy snow, then squirted the snow with yellow, green, and purple dyes.  The whole thing is still sitting in my backyard doing its thing.  I'll check on it tomorrow.
