Easter Sunday is just two days away, and today Big Brother and I checked to see on the eggs we dyed overnight. I tried it two years ago and was a little disappointed with the results. This time, I feel better about my method and three of the five colors we did (I know how … Continue reading Naturally dyed Easter eggs
Woohoo, the year is fresh and I am motivated! I mentioned knitting gifts throughout the year, and I began preparing for this by adding several patterns to my queue on Ravelry (lovely knitting and crocheting community website) last night.
