Don't Put All Your Eggs In One Basket...
...or at least in this case, maybe it's ok.
I'm not even sure when Easter is this year, April 5th right?
All I know is that the weather has been telling me it's just around the
corner, and if I want to crochet some egg covers I'd better get busy!
I picked up this vintage wire egg basket years ago and the dealer gave me the
plastic eggs that she had displayed in it.
I remember thinking that I'd decoupage the eggs with colorful paper.
(still like that idea...hum, now I need more plastic eggs)
But, for now I decided to crochet covers, since I
love crochet so much! You DO know that about me don't you? :-)
I pulled out all of my thread stash and decided on
"natural" colors and threads; cotton and my favorite, linen.
It was a great way to use up thread I already had, and with the
natural color selection I think I can get away with leaving them
out in the vintage basket through the end of April, don't you?
So, will you be decorating eggs for Easter this year?
I love deviled eggs so I'm thinking I might even get one of the little
PAAS coloring kits and color some "real" eggs the old fashioned way!
Spring has arrived early here in Seattle.
Everything is in bloom!
I can only hope that doesn't mean a long hot summer for us
"cooler, rainy weather folk."
Hope you are enjoying your weekend and that spring is heading your way too!
