I hard boiled a few eggs this morning but have left off dyeing them. A giant chocolate rabbit has been being nibbled at for a week already, beyond a Sunday dinner, we don't do Easter now that the boys are (mostly) grown. It used to be like minor Christmas here on Easter. Somehow the notion of new toys crept into the baskets in place of excess candy.
There was cloth to dye today first thing. Sometimes ideas come in dreams.
Whether or not this is a good idea remains to be seen. This fabric has been lolling in the soda ash tub a while now. I ripped it into strips and rolled them, not too tightly.
the dye went straight onto the turkey platter and the ends dabbed in colors.
and then laid out like so many tasty little Cannoli to spend the day drying in the hot sun.
Now to keep my hands off them for a while.
PS...why wait? I unrolled them to dry flat in the sun...quickly.
