Spring has Sprung!?
So this was the scene on Easter morning here. Can you believe it? Ordinarily, Easter weather is bright and at least on the warmer side of 10 degrees Celsius (50 degrees Fahrenheit). Of course this weather did not put a damper on the egg hunting, which went something like this: Daughter number one finding eggs, excitedly putting them in a basket. Daughter two finding eggs, excitedly showing mom and dad, daughter one saying "thank you" and taking the eggs from daughter two, then putting them in a basket. It was quite entertaining. I was up late finishing the baby bolero and hiding eggs was the last thing I did before bed at 1 a.m. Not very wise considering as soon as daughter one woke she was very eager to "hunt".
I did manage to scrape up enough energy to boil our breakfast eggs in three fun colours for extra oomph to a staple meal around here. Lots of photos for you to enjoy. I thought the eggs looked neat bubbling along with the colours and some oil for speckling.
The baby bolero is finished, hear the heavenly music playing? It took a lot of ripping out, and frustration, but it continues to shape up as I sew in more loose threads. Better get back to it while I can.
Hope you all had a great week-end!
