K-9 Pisanki

Every Easter I make pisanki, Polish traditional Easter eggs. They are dyed in onion peals then an image is scratched into the egg using a sharp object like a pin. Usually images are of chickens, bunnies, ducks, bazie (pussy willow), wheat, and other imagery depicting new life and happiness.

This year I thought I would make one slightly different, but an object that does bring me lots of joy, K-9. Here is the result...

The beautiful bunny and bazie (on the dark egg) were done by Sarah.

Fairwell Sarah Jane Smith

I have just learned that Elisabeth Sladen has passed away after loosing her battle with cancer.  I must admit that this news has made me very sad, and even brought quite a few tears to my eyes.  I remembered watching her as a teenager on Dr.Who repeats on the ABC, enjoying how she was good friends with the Doctor as they traveled through time and space.  I also loved her recent role reprisal in the Sarah Jane Smith Adventures, her fine acting keeping me entertained.

Liz, I will miss you.

Here is what the media are saying on her passing...

British actress Elisabeth Sladen, best known for her role in cult science fiction television series Doctor Who, has died after a battle with cancer.
Liverpool-born Sladen, who was 63, first appeared on the BBC show in 1973, playing the Doctor's assistant, Sarah Jane Smith.
Sladen went on to star in her own spin-off children's show, The Sarah Jane Adventures, the latest series of which was aired late last year.
She made several guest appearances in the revived Doctor Who series with David Tennant.
"I absolutely loved Lis," former Doctor Who writer Russell T Davies, who created The Sarah Jane Adventures, said.
"She was funny and cheeky and clever and just simply wonderful."
Doctor Who's lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, has also paid tribute.
"'Never meet your heroes', wise people say. They weren't thinking of Lis Sladen," said Moffat.
"Sarah Jane Smith was everybody's hero when I was younger, and as brave and funny and brilliant as people only ever are in stories.
"She was exactly as any child would ever have wanted her to be. Kind and gentle and clever; and a ferociously talented actress but in that perfectly English unassuming way."
Sladen leaves behind actor husband Brian Miller and daughter Sadie.
