  5. I used natural dyes this year - turmeric for the gold, red cabbage for the blue, and onion skins for the reddish color. Not shown were chartreuse (turmeric and red cabbage) and salmon (turmeric and onion). It was fun, but very time-consuming. I think this might be a one-off. I hope your Easter was bright!

  7. Your eggs are gorgeous! We did natural dying with our homeschool group one year and they didn't turn out ANYTHING like that. Yours look awesome!!

  8. Dr. Momi - I was very pleased with the colors. Hope you had a very happy Easter.

    Mama Tea - It took ages to get these dyed! The turmeric ones had to be simmered in the dye for 20 minutes, and the dark blue ones had to sit in the cabbage dye overnight. This was not instant gratification!
