Day 89: Eggs!

This year I decided to make Easter egg dye with materials we already have at home:

All of these dyes were made using the basic process of adding the sources of color to boiling water (1-2 cups), adding about 2 teaspoons of white vinegar, and letting the mix soak for a while.  From left to right: red cabbage, dill seed, paprika, turmeric, frozen raspberries.

W only had brown eggs, from Innisfree on the Stillwater, naturally:

You have to let the eggs soak for quite a long time.  Ours probably soaked for about 18 hours.  But, the wait was worth it:

I think my favorites are the turmeric yellow ones.

While I was out, my husband and daughter turned these into egg-cellent masterpieces!

A blessed Easter to you all!
