Things are going better today. Using empty eggs seems to be a better choice for me, as I am prone to dropping the eggs. With a full egg, one bounce on the floor or in the dye jar, might be its last. I get a lot more chances with an empty one.
I think I should just stick to free flowing designs for a while too. I'm more interested in doing them and I don't have the skill yet to do perfect lines that a geometric design requires. Eventually I might get there, but I'm not there yet.
