Eastereggs

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.

I’m still out there..

Hello, I know it’s been a while, sorry for that. Life got in the way, and I wasn’t stitching that much anyway.

I hope things will get much more interesting again. I started to work on Sharons TAST challenge again, and I signed up for her sumptuos surfaces class. Here are some spring pics from a walk in the nearby forests.  The frogs are fire-bellied toads, the tadpoles are most probably future grass frogs. Stitching soon to come.
