SPS: Easter Egg Dye

Like many of you, our Sunday was filled with lots of eggs and dyeing.
Here is Chiquita working on her eggs. The key to this process is lots of newspaper to protect the table! Can you spot my Project Spectrum striped egg in the back?
Then after the little one was in bed I broke out the fiber. Here I used the leftover pink, green and yellow to dye some of Misty's correidale roving and then steam set the dye.
How great are these colors? I know a lot of people look down on "non-professional dyes" for their lack of many shades and color intensities, but I am absolutely loving the brights at the moment.
I know I won't get to spin this before April is over, but I hope to get to it in May.
