You Dyed What With Easter Egg Dyes!!!!

So we didn’t actually get to Easter Egg dying til the Wednesday after Easter, because we were too busy Easter Sunday, and then Monday was a day of recovery, and Tuesday was just… another day of rest (besides work and school that is). LOL So here is what happened on the Wednesday after Easter. There was much egg dying…


OOooohh, prettttty Rainbow egg! I had to get this one down, because every year the kiddo’s forget how to make it, and then every year dh reminds them. Yellow first, then one end dip in orange, and then the dark red, and the other end dip in blue, then purple. In this close up pic it little a little like a wobbly planet picture taken by the Hubble.ย  ๐Ÿ˜›


THEN… this happened! Dye cups full of fiber!

The hands that squished even more fiber into the cups…


The finished product drying overnight. I didn’t get pictures the next morning when we moved it all to hangers to finish drying.


Then two days later we bagged it all up. Emily gets the orange, and I added a little white fiber to hers so she would have more, and told her if she spins them together it’ll look like a creamsicle. Cassie gets the bag with the blue in it. She promises not to spin all the green so I can have a little.ย  Yes, that white looking stuff in her baggie is a very very light shade of green also. Don’t know what happened in that cup but the dye just didn’t take up. And then I get all that pink, and hot pink, and the broken purples/blues. When the girls saw how the colors broke across the fibers they ooooohed and ahhhhed! Should make for lots of pretty fingerless mitts after we get it all spun up!!!


Took a couple of scrubbings for my kitchen table not to look like this. ๐Ÿ˜›


And that is about all for our dying adventures is past month. Now that the girls know we can dye with Kool Aide, and food colorings, and Easter Egg dyes, I’m hiding my last pound and a half of white fiber! ๐Ÿ˜€ More pictures shortly!
