My first bargain at an Op Shop

At last I did snag a great bargain. It is an Lanarte complete kit marked $35 for just $ 3. Must have been in the right place at the right time. Mind you I bought it for a different experiment in dyeing....It's called ice dyeing. Last weekend I was away with one of my stitching groups and one member ...

Check it out on google .I haven't done enough to show a pic as yet. This technique depends heavily on your colour choices. something I waste soo much time with . ...
