A Busy Weekend!

Well, as I said I would do, I made some more change purses. I don't know what I'm going to do with all of them, but they're addicting!
Then it was off to my sister Kathy's, to do Pysanky eggs.

From the left, Kathy, my mother, my sister Marti, and our family friend and adopted sister Nancy. To do an egg takes at least an hour, a task of layering dyes and wax.
After finishing the egg, it's time to remove the wax. This is done with a candle, paper towels, and a steady hand!
These are a few of the many eggs that were made yesterday, most their owners took home with them!

These are three that I did,
and these are eggs of Easter's past, one which is 15 years old. If you've never tried this art form, do give it a whirl, it's really a lot of fun!
