HE IS RISEN!
OK! The sugar has worn off and Easter is now over but I did get some of my projects done which turned out fairly good. First, this year I wanted to try tie-dyeing eggs. Miles wasn't too impressed actually with the whole process, I think he really likes the whole messy dip and dye the eggs thing so maybe we'll do a few that way again next year. I actually bought this kit from The June Bride on Etsy which saved me from scrounging the thrift store for silk ties. This turned out to be fairly easy and I decided to blow out the eggs since we weren't going to be eating them. Matt helped me with blowing them out and he and Miles' helped to wrap them. I weighted the wrapped eggs down with a Pyrex glass casserole lid and I also used a
stainless steel pot since I didn't have a glass or enamel one. I do think next time around I will get the silk wet before wrapping the eggs to see if that would help make the silk tighter. I also finished making the cashmere bunnies for Max and Vivian. Vivian was so funny because she found the one I was making for Max and then wanted to know where hers was! I completely lucked out when I went hunting for a pink cashmere sweater at our local DAC thrift store because I really didn't expect to find one. This was my first attempt at a soft toy and they weren't quite the Betz White perfection but it was
fun and I'd definitely try it again.
I was going to hang these with ribbon but didn't have a spot for them, so my Mikasa bowl got to be the happy container instead!The bunnies turned out cute if not perfect!
