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.
