our good friday tradition

i know this is late, but still i wanted to share our egg coloring afternoon hours which we enjoyed at my parents on good friday afternoon.
it is a tradition and non of us wanted to let good friday pass by, without going about the excitement and crafty act of decorating easter eggs.
we used little spring flowers and grasses, tied them up with old broken panty hoses, to keep the petals in place. the other technique uses rubber bands and i have to say i like both ways of decorating the eggs. i usually like the last step best. when the eggs have been cooked in the different prepared natural dyes, this year it was yello and red, and then take them out, wash tem under the running cold water and discover the "print".

we didn't use up all the collected little flowers, they made for a wonderful little arrangement...
