Easter Eggs



This is my attempt at doing tatted Easter eggs. The green one with the yellow cross I just finished; the blue egg in the background I did last year. Both are done in size 20 cotton pinned to satin eggs purchased from Handy Hands.

There are many beautiful eggs shown by tatters on the Internet. I very much admire the ones that are done using real, blown eggshells. However, in my household, I think real eggshells would get broken very quickly! So it's good that satin eggs are available.

By the way, the cross pattern is pretty much the same as the center of my shamrock pattern listed on the Tatting Calendar for March 11. I just used a smaller stitch count.

How breathtakingly beautiful! And you said my tatting was lovely! I am really impressed. Yes, the camera is digital with that button for closeups, but it doesn't seem to do any good. I think we made a bad choice!

Thank you all for the compliments! The camera I used to take the photo is a Sony Cybershot. I'm really enjoying taking pictures with it.

Thanks for the camera suggestion. I will look into that tomorrow!
