still life and snow

I finished the quilting on my b/w still life. As the quilting is also done in black and white showing a picture of the front would not have been very helpful. Therefore I am showing you two pictures of the back so that you can see the quilting lines. I used a variety of designs.

I was told that the last couple of days it was not possible to click on the pictures to get a larger image. Hopefully that glitch has been solved.

Another thing I did today was some snow dyeing. When I woke up this morning I saw that there was snow, not much only 0,5" or so but enough to try out this technique. Dyeing friends of mine in the US have lots of opportunities to snow dye, but for me it was my first chance. This picture shows you my tray filled with fabric, snow and dye mixture. It took the snow 4 hours to melt and at the moment the fabric is soaking. I was able to gather more snow for a second piece. Pictures will follow later this week.

Prachtig intensief quiltwerk Wil!

Het verven met sneeuw is een leuk project. Jammer dat er hier niet zo vaak sneeuw ligt.Vorige maand is er hier in het zuiden 15 cm gevallen, die enkele weken bleef liggen door de vorst. Jammer dat ik niet wist dat je het voor stofverven kon gebruiken! Wel een verassing hoe de lapjes worden?
