A dozen Easter eggs.....

Yesterday evening I crocheted a dozen Easter eggs for my tree. I happened upon this pattern on Scraponique's blog when I found adorable egg cozies on the same blog. Since I already had a pink yarn out as I am making crochet cherry blossoms, I decided to put them aside and make some eggs instead...


My white lit branches are my Easter tree again this year but in a very different way. They are on top of my hutch and hanging over so the egg ornaments hang free.


The antiqued white metal eggs are ones I have been using for the last few years but the pink crochet eggs work really well with them, don't you think? It is a soft look that makes me think of spring.

Speaking of spring...where is it? It is cold here in Holland with a biting east wind.


Are you making any fun and easy things for Easter this year?

  3. They are really cute but boy it sure is not spring here. We have about 4 inches of snow on the ground and I AM SICK OF IT.
    Love your eggs.
    Hugs and Kisses, Mom

  10. I love the fairy lights on your soft and pretty Easter tree! Hope this finds you feeling well with warmer weather soon; we are very dry in my part of Southern California/USA, with temps hovering around 70 degrees (F). We could have used more rain this year. Full moon tonight. Sending best wishes for a nice holiday, Heidi.

  12. I love the eggs and you light tree is amazing (jealous!). I'm having a crafty Easter - I have a week off work - but I'm not making anything specifically for Easter. Just keeping the usual ticking over :)
