Handmade Monday #20

It's Handmade Monday time!
Welcome to another Handmade Monday, the place to share your makes, bakes and other handmade craft ideas or just find some new inspiration.

We've had an absolutely gorgeous weekend here in the UK, the sun has shone, not a cloud in the sky. Blue skies really do lift the spirits compared to the relentless grey we have so often here!

Here are the features from last weeks Handmade Monday. Two different ways to speckle eggs, both are beautiful - how lovely to have options!
Sew Historical is all about using natural dyes and has done A LOT of experimenting of what works, what doesn't, what results different foods stuffs will give and has shared all her finding. I won't say what she uses for this speckle effect here - you'll have to click through so you can see it explained properly!


Dianne from Deanie's Stash has a fool proof method for her speckled eggs which her kids were able to get involved with - the results are really pretty. 

And lastly another special mention this week. 
Wendy from My French Twist made this lovely Copper Easter Wreath and credits another of our regular linker-up-ers Claire from Pillar Box Blue as her inspiration for the paper bunnies.
This is exactly what Handmade Monday is all about, sharing our ideas, supporting one another, being inspired by others (and always giving proper credit of course!) 

Congratulations, here is a "Yay! I was featured" button for your blog.

  2. Lovely post! I love dyeing eggs, I normally use red onion skin if I want them red or turmeric if I want them yellow. I will definitely do some speckled ones this year :).

    1. It's lovely to see when someone is inspired by someone else we "know" isn't it? We all share our ideas in the hope that other people will want to try it out after all!

    1. Yay, so happy you have been able to join us. We've had some newbies join which is lovely but a good smattering of the old faithfuls as well (and I mean old in a totally non offensive - you're not old sort of way of course!)
