Easter and Christmas
Happy Easter! I hope you are having a lovely long weekend. I am - this morning we had a traditional egg hunt which was great fun. Yesterday we dyed free-range eggs using natural dyes. The red and brown onion skins worked very well, the turmeric and coffee not so much, but we still have a lovely batch of eggs in autumn colours. Which is quite fitting, since it is autum here in the Southern Hemisphere of course. Today was a rainy day, so I stayed indoors and did some quilting.
I thought I was early last year when I made a Christmas project in May, but this year it's March! Can't show it yet, but I can show you the fabrics I am using, from the Sparkle collection designed by Amanda Murphy. So pretty!
