The eggs in this basket are not blown out and I’ve had them for years. If you just leave them at room temperature they will definitely get rotten and stink up the whole house. BUT if you have a frig in the garage for example, you can put fresh eggs in the crisper drawer and leave them for 2-3 months – under refrigeration of course. The insides of the egg dry up and sometimes will even rattle a bit. At that point they’re safe to display in your home. I’ve used this basket of eggs at Easter for many many years even though some of the shell colors have lost their beautiful shades of green, blue, pink, tan and ivory. It’s probably time to start saving eggs for a new batch.
And there’s your lesson about dried eggs.
The block I mistakenly posted first is the next one I’m going to present to you but we’ve got lots to do before we get to that block. Connie will be doing the presenting of the quilt along and I will also follow along and sew with you. I’m hoping everyone will know how to send me pictures of their fabric choices.
Take your photo and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then I can post to the blog and it will be so much fun to see what others have chosen.
Someone said we’ll be making 5 blocks per week for 4 weeks – I don’t sew that way, do you? I’m guessing Connie has broken it down to like units – I’m seeing her tomorrow so I’ll know more soon.
Off to my sewing machine!
PS – Do you remember the black and white polka dot chicken I named Dot? You also remember she disappeared like many others? A few days ago I found her under a ledge of overhanging hay sitting on a huge nest of eggs. Mind you these eggs are not likely fertilized with one lonely rooster in the coop but she thinks they are. I’m just thrilled she’s still alive!
