Having An Egg-Cellent Day!

It's a bad pun I know but I just don't seem to be able to help myself.

After having the Ninja Eggs over for a bit I seem to have gone off in a decidedly egg-ish direction.

Not being well known for my culinary skills this two eggs in one shell thing came as a total shock to me, apparently, according to a friend at work who cooks regularly, this happens frequently.

I still felt bad even as I was racing to find my camera and snap a picture before my eggs stuck permanently to the bottom of my pan.

Apparently I can boil water! Hehe. These fabulous eggs were made quite simply. Using a technique that a customer, (RetroVertigo) from my LeftOverFishstikks store pointed me in the direction of over at Martha Stewart. Now usually Martha gets me in a world of trouble, case in point being the marshmallow monstrosity, but these silk fabric dyed eggs were super easy.

Aren't they gorgeous! I simply used a variety of silk (from LeftOverFishStikks) and Martha's technique (actually one of her assistants' aunts' technique) and dyed them in a pot of boiling water.

What are your special Easter Egg dying techniques, would love to hear them!
