Right now, I’m busy doing Sharon’s online class, Sumptuous Surfaces. This is really keeping me busy. I can’t even find the time to write a comprehensive blog post about it. So I show something older. Before easter, I did some stitched eastereggs. They were done on cotton fabric and my mother glued them onto natural size plastic eggs. I gave the green one one to a coworker for easter, my mother got to keep the other two. The last one will be finished next easter I guess. It’s not like easter’s not going to come next year after all.
The green and the orange/hot pink one are own designs, the orange one is loosely based on a pattern from an old embroidery magazine.The green one is in Coats #8 perle cotton and DMC cotton a broder 25, the other two are in 2 strands of stranded cotton. The fabric is fine eavenwave cotton, I have no idea which. A local needlework shop sells it in “easteregg stripes” just wide enough for an easteregg.
