Lent is Pysanky time

Last Saturday was a Pysanky day for my SIL, Marie, and I. Pysanky are Ukrainian Easter Eggs.  She brought "Bug" along. Rascal sure liked the way she scratched his head.
We each finished 2 eggs. We started mid-morning and worked all day, stopping for lunch and supper.
David kept us company when he returned from work.
Hannah, a.k.a. Bug, taught Uncle David how to play Angry Birds! They had a blast.
Since the head scratching was over, Rascal took a nap in my Pysanky supply suitcase!

Supplies for Pysanky include a table cover, pattern books, beeswax, candles, blown out egg shells, rubber bands, vinegar, dyes, paper towels, pencil, and kistky. I ordered my dyes, pattern books, beeswax and kistky from . I currently have 12 dye colors mixed in quart canning jars. I really need to buy more jars and mix my remaining colors.
This is the first egg I made this year.
This was the third that I finished on Sunday.
I also made the egg on the far right on Saturday. David requested an egg with a Scottish thistle to represent his Scottish roots. The rest of the eggs are from last year. So far, I have only lost one egg to breakage. Rascal is to blame! So I no longer display them on the table. They now reside behind glass doors with my Depression glass and other breakables.
Y'all come back,
