I love Easter and Spring and every thing about this time of year! For some reason though, I feel like Easter has crept up on me this year. I can't believe it's only twenty-five days away. I decided I wanted to create some Spring/Easter items for my daughters and our home. Quite conveniently, I then discovered that there is to be a Crafty Easter Linky Party at Crea in the City. Naturally, I want to take part. Feel free to visit her blog and sign up if this appeals to you, as well.
And now, here is my first attempt at a crocheted Easter egg. Which, by the way, I found at Julie-k.
I have to say that I wasn't sure about the way this pretty blue egg looked. Then, Miss O, my beautiful firstborn, asked, "Mommy, why are you making an Easter egg?"
I literally squealed at her question and she looked at me like I'd lost my mind just a bit. When I explained that I was pleased she could tell it was actually an Easter egg she shrugged and just said, "Okay."
I will definitely be making more of these cute eggs. I think what they need is more polyfill in order to appear more like an egg to my eyes. In addition to the eggs, I am going to make Easter baskets for my girls and some pretty Spring time place mats for our kitchen table. I really dislike our table so I'm hoping the vibrant mats will pretty the table up dramatically. They will be something to include with the Pretty Crafty Home project, too.
