There are many things I try that end up being a flop. Crafts, sewing, embroidery ..... sometimes things just don't turn out how I have pictured them in my mind. Does this ever happen to you?
If it doesn't, you are one of the lucky ones. Me, myself, I am not so lucky.
I had seen this post on my Pinterest board and I just had to try it for Easter.
First, I have to admit, I didn't read the directions thoroughly. It was one of those days when company kept showing up and I couldn't concentrate strictly on the task at hand so I kind of winged it. Now when I go back and READ the directions, I see where I went wrong.
I also had eggs that would JUST NOT peel properly!!! I kept trying eggs and they would not cooperate ..... but I kept on hoping that I least I could get close to the picture above.
Well that was NOT going to happen. So in the final pictures you can see that end result.
I was able to get everything ready. Then company showed up ..... I didn't read that I was suppose to PEEL the eggs first. Duh! I put them in the colored solution of cider vinegar with the peelings on. Then I realized that they should be peeled so I tried to peel them. Well that didn't work too well.
I put the peeled eggs back in the solution, well then it only took seconds to change color so I immediately took them out.
Fixing my usual devilled egg recipe, I finished them off. They were still tasty but sure didn't look pretty!
Oh well, my projects can't ALWAYS turn out!! Next time I try a new craft, I will make sure to read the instructions first.
Here's hoping all your crafting turns out and remember to give your loved ones a hug!
