I love poppies!

I’ve wanted to try some stained glass eggs and finally spent some time playing. Fun, but very time consuming!

This year at the Pysanky USA retreat I took a Baba Doll class and this is the completed egg. She was so much fun to create. I think I’m going to have to try making a few more.

For the last several years I’ve been going to the Pysanky USA retreat in Pennsylvania to take classes and also to teach classes. I often come home with unfinished eggs, and (true confession here) don’t always get around to finishing them. I had some time and energy last week and decided it was time to complete a couple of these projects. Here’s my favorite from a class taught by Theresa Somerset.

Last Sunday I had the privilege of working on a goose egg as part of our weekend worship services at Oak Hills Church. I brought the egg home and finished it yesterday.

This was a special request egg. Shades of turquoise with a family poem for a sixteen-year-old granddaughter.

Experimenting with a new technique this time. Alcohol inks combined with the usual dyes gave an interesting background. I liked the way this egg turned out…and I don’t even like orange!

These Trypillian-style eggs are addicting. Just three colors, but unlimited possibilities.

Pretty blue Delft-inspired eggs to brighten a rainy day!

I’m having so much fun with quilt-inspired designs for the class I’m teaching at the Pysanky USA retreat next week. Here’s a group photo of a few of the new eggs.

Another egg exchange project.

My first ever etched emu egg. I’ve had a couple of emu eggs for years, but never quite got up the courage to try working on them. It really helped to take a class from an expert with lots of experience.

New blue floral eggs.
Here’s a large goose egg.
…and a smaller goose egg.
Another small goose egg.
A turkey egg.
And a small quail egg.

Playing with black and white eggs again, only this time with a tiny parakeet egg and a larger turkey egg.
…and thinking about Christmas coming up always puts me in the mood for reds and greens.

Sometimes designs that look so simple are really difficult to figure out. This one stretched my brain a bit until I got the hang of it.
June 25, 2011
New dyes and a new technique equals fun.
June 8, 2011
This may be my best goose egg yet. I love the bright red against the dark red background.
March 15, 2011
New dye colors open up a whole new world for play. Here are a couple of samples of my new blues and greens.
And a few more Trypillian designs…
