Ostrich and Emu Eggs
Last year I had a conversation with my cousin who works as a head nurse in Saudi Arabia in the Kingdom of Ryadh Her stories about living over there would make your hair curl honestly, she has seen it all.( Stories for another day ladies)So.............................. back to my egg story!
She knows I love to make pysanky eggs and I was desperate as always to find goose eggs,this is how the conversation went between us, I said I wish I could find something other than chicken eggs, I wanted to work on something bigger than chicken eggs,living so far North in Canada we are limited to what we can get up here.And that conversation ended on that note.
On her next visit back to Canada to see her mother(my father's sister), she called me and asked if we could get together, so I went over to my aunt's home to see my little cousin.She handed me an ostrich egg, well I was floored, I was so amaized and happy to have this precious gift from her that she brought all that way( the other side of the pond she calls it),I could not stop hugging her and thanking her I was so happy and tickled !!!
She said Diane you know eggs come in a dozen !!!!!!!!! Then rolls over this huge suitcase with 11 more ostrich eggs and 2 emu eggs all wrapped in lots and lots of bubble wrap !!!!!!!!!!!
I was so surprised I was speechless !!
Imagine if you will travelling all the way from Saudi Arabia with 14 eggs in a suitcase to give to someone!
My little cousin she is special! No one other than my hubby and my children has ever done anything so nice as that for me, she actually listened to me, actually heard what I said to her, that alone floored me .My little cousin is special ,and I just love her to bits!
I have yet to work on them,my life has been turned upside down last year with my mother's illness and eventual death
I can't seem to get my normal back, do you know what I mean?? I miss my Mom so much,it took something away from me I may never recover, it occupies my mind more than my hobbies.
Doing my eggs was the furthest thing on my mind,and I still haven't done any since then,I need to make new and fresh dyes, then maybe the spirit will move me to do them again.
I thought you might like to see my ostrich and emu eggs, since then I have been given another emu egg from a cousin who lives out in Dartmouth in Nova Scotia, she is a little darling too!
Does anyone out there in blogland work on ostrich eggs I could use some pointers and hints ,where and how to begin.Someone.... anyone???
Thank You For Your Patience - I am such a procrastinator of the worst kind... I admit it........ BUT.................... On the other hand I am working on a new blog, I will be open for b...
