DearHusband has agreed to drive down to his hometown and present a little session on Pysanky for his mom's extension club on April 10. This should give him a good opportunity to see some of the women he's known since childhood and also to put that education degree to work a little.
He's been doing his homework - reading up on the history and symbolism and on various tools and techniques and planning this little session. We decided it would be a nice idea to choose a simple design and make one for each of the ladies who are members of this group to take along home with them.
We managed to whack out a dozen of these in a single weekend - and we didn't even have to miss any church to get it done!
Now we just have to get them varnished and blown and rinsed - then we can resume writing some eggs of different designs for the rest of Lent.
