Coloring Easter Eggs

I used the Martha Stewart recipe to cook our Easter eggs to dye.  My mom also used the same recipe & didn't have very good luck.  All her eggs were raw.  We had a good laugh over that one! My eggs were all cooked & we are most of them on Easter day.

Art & I always dye Easter eggs the weekend of Easter.  Art wanted to dye 4 dozen eggs. I only made 1 dozen.  He wasn't very happy he only got to dye 6 eggs. He likes to make all sorts of designs.  This year he grabbed a sharpie & got to work on making designs.

I made red, blue, purple & green color from food coloring, vinegar & hot water.  As you will see I am NOT happy with how the purple color turned out.  It doesn't look like purple at all!  I followed the directions on the box exactly to make purple....well it didn't work.

 HEY my egg isn't purple!!!

Ugh what in the world is this color? It looks like poop!
 Look at my face...NOT happy!

 Art was getting sick of pictures & not happy there weren't another 4 dozen eggs to color!

mmmmm deviled eggs!
