Today, as we wrap up another week of shooting, I just wanted to share with you some photos from my favorite craft I worked on this week: silk-dyed Easter eggs. Jackie Blais, from our audience department, introduced us to this craft a few years ago, using pieces from old silk ties. This time we skipped "cutting up our husbands' ties" (as Martha says) and bought a 1/2 yard or less of several beautiful, bright silks at the great Manhattan fabric stores B & J and Mood.
The gallery below shows a piece of each silk with the egg it produced.
If you missed our segment and would like to learn how to do this, check out our corresponding online article. It's a great craft to do with kids, and even the less-than-perfect ones (I had many of those, too!) are beautifully colorful.
Happy Easter and Passover weekend!
