Dye Love

My talented friend Nancy, from Vagabond’s Daughter, invited a few of us to experiment with onion skins as a dyeing agent on eggs.  Nancy provided a variety of natural resists, such as parsley and fennel and we applied  yellow and red onion skins to the uncooked eggs, tied into the stretchy hug of pantyhose.  I brought a silk scarf from a previous lime-green dye day , and shibori-ed the scarf with eggs and rubber bands.  There was also a pot of red cabbage with blueberries that yielded the dark gray eggs.
