After my Saturday morning of cleaning house, Autumn and I took a little walk downtown and visited Margie's, Dakota Antiques (looking for vintage Betsy Tacy books) and the fabric store. I bought another fat quarter of the black and white fabric I love so much for my puppy dog tea towels.
I was recently reminded that I had done these little embroidered Easter eggs a few years ago and I've decided to do a few more this year. Last year I painted blown-eggs for my family. Not sure I want to do that again this year.
|Painted Eggs from Easter last year. Fun to do, but quite time consuming over my weekends.|
I made these three over the weekend so they really don't take that long at all! It felt so good to be taking some time to embroider again after putting the floss away for awhile. And these are small, simple and nice to work on while listening to Autumn practice piano, or during the winding-down time after supper. Hopefully, I'll get enough done so I can give many away!
