Happy Easter!

Last night we dyed Easter Eggs. Aside from the normal tablet-dye you buy at the store we tried a new fun method the hubby heard about on the radio. See the patterned eggs? This is how it is done:
First take an old silk tie you never plan to wear again.

Then take out some uncooked eggs.

Cut the tie so you have a piece of fabric large enough to cover the egg. With the pattern facing towards the egg wrap the fabric snugly around it.

Next, wrap some string around the egg to hold the fabric in place.

Carefully place the wrapped eggs in boiling water and boil for 30 minutes.

Remove the bundle after the allotted time and let it cool before handling.

Carefully cut the string and unwrap your egg. Pretty cool, huh?

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter!
