Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life. ~S.D. Gordon
It's hard to believe Easter is almost upon us. Wasn't Christmas only last month?? We've been busily decorating our homes with eggs of all descriptions and thought it would be wonderful to put it all together to show you what we've been up to this year.
Twine Wrapped Easter Eggs
Louise made some lovely twine wrapped eggs, finished with crochet cotton in Spring hues and a myriad of buttons to accentuate the natural feel of the decoration. I can just imagine these in a wooden bowl as a table centrepiece.
No Bake Easter Cookies
I came up with a plan to decorate cookies (or biscuits as we call them in Australia). These took no time at all and I was thrilled with how they turned out. Sometimes when I'm decorating cakes and biscuits, what I envisaged in my head doesn't always come to fruition, but thankfully in this case it did, and they were delicious too.
Gnome on the Range Egg Cosy
Our little gnome is a very sweet addition to any breakfast table and Louise shared her pattern for any knitters who's breakfast table is calling out for this little fellow. You can find the complete pattern here
Egg Cosy Sampler
Another egg cosy we came up with was as an embroidery sampler. A great way to learn different stitches on a small scale, while producing a lovely cosy to keep your egg warm. This one might even be a great project for young beginners.
Daisy Egg Cosy
Another egg cosy (and a fantastic way to use up small amounts of wool) is our Knitted Daisy Cosy. It's like waking up to a table full of spring sunshine, very helpful at this time of the year in Australia when the days are starting to shorten and there's a definite chill in the morning air.
Fabric Covered Eggs
Lastly, inspired by some fabric in the remnants bin that had a beautiful stained glass feel, we put together a bowl of fabric covered eggs, to decorate either the mantle or table.
