|Another great idea for egg decoration. Using lace you can glue a strip of lace or cut out little motifs to mount to the egg. (Use non-toxic washable glue or use eggs with blown out shells, even wooden eggs) Secure the motif, dip in your dye, place on a rack to dry, then carefully remove the lace. I have made these in the past using old curtains that were destined for the bin. I would stretch the lace tightly over the egg and secured the fabric with one of those little wire twistie ties from the bread bags. It took me a while to gather the ties because I bake my own bread. But it worked nicely. Only flaw was the impression, in the back. where I had gathered up the lace. Solution, make that side the back side. Of course, Martha would not have a bad side!|
Did you see the blood moon the night before last? We had very heavy cloud cover so my viewing was a misty looking sort of pink thing floating in the sky at tree top level. I didn't stay up for the eclipse, I didn't wait for the clouds to clear, I went to bed, slept like a rock. In honor of that I searched for some music to commemorate the occasion, all I could come up with is Blue Moon, The Marcels, 1961 *turn up your speakers ladies!
