Frosted Pinks and Eggheads
Yesterday and the day before brought back the flurries and snow fall. So I was treated to Daffodils on Ice and Frosted Pinks when I ventured out to refill the bird feeder.
We finished the first set of Pysanki that M, S and I attempted at a friend's house. They turned out very pretty, S's orange Egghead, M's burgundy with daisies and my white on blue freehand vines and a more stylized turquoise and royal blue pattern.
I've ordered a set of dyes and supplies to try out more intricate designs: surely these are not meant to be done at Easter alone- they're too much fun to make. It's a pity that the regular craft stores and markets don't carry supplies for Ukrainian egg decorating. I had to special order over the internet and have every intention of trying out some really elaborate patterns soon.
