Snow dyeing 3

I have started to 'cook' another batch of snow dyeing. I am not sure how this batch will turn out, as the snow has got frost in it and it was more like making coloured snowballs than candy floss. I have used Procion raspberry and golden yellow, not my usual colour scheme choice, I don't do yellow! The colours remind me of the sweets I used to have as a child 'Rhubarb and Custard'. I wonder if they still make them!
I have also finished my book cover and joined two sides of my vessel to the base( photos will come later when something worth showing.)My school bags are packed, the play dough is made, Alan has put petrol in my car and two bags of sand in my boot so I don't do a Torville and Dean on the ice driving to work tomorrow. I have got time to go and do a bit more stitching before bed. It is going to be a l o n g day as there is a staff meetimg after work:0(

Does the snow work a bit like salt crystals? I've never tried it..I'd better be quick!
I remember those sweets.

I'm fascinated seeeing all this snow dying going on... seems to have passed me by as a technique. I think M & S still make rhubarb and custard sweets.
