Eggs for Easter

Before I tell you all about our egg dyeing fun I wanted to show that I still do some quilty things. I picked up Hannah's quilt yesterday before we went to the park. It was a great day for the park. I'll get the binding on it soon.


Easter egg dyeing is such a fun thing to do with the kids. Hannah goes for the artistic look of using rubber bands, crayons, and different color combos.


Simon uses his fingers and dips in different colors.


Seth just wanted red. That's it, red. I snuck a blue one in though. After he had them dyed he liked using the stickers to decorate.

They definitely enjoyed themselves. Simon ate two of his eggs immediately. Guess he didn't want to look at his creative work, he wanted to taste it.

Direct flash.

Bounce flash, so much better!

Here's wishing you all a very...

I love your quilt and the color choice, much more than the designers lotus pattern. How did you decide on the random pattern of quilting? It seems perfect for the strips.

Great photos!

Paul's math tutor just said when they were house hunting they didn't even consider houses with oil heat ... one more thing to consider.

Barbara- The fabric line is a newer Amy Butler one, Midwest Modern 2. My daughter picked out the pattern when we took the quilt in.
