21:365 Eggs, but not the edible kind. ;-)

Anna: I'll probably posting a lot of egg or Easter related pictures in the next while. After being sick for a couple of days, I've got some catching up to do for Easter!

I decided use the light box again and broke out the plastic grass to make a nest for my slowly growing crafted eggs collection.

For the crafty people, all the egg cores were done the same, using a foam core wrapped with sewing thread. The temari egg on the bottom was done using rayon floss. It's extremely slippery and hard to work with, but the shiny floss is very effective. The top one is done in ordinary embroidery floss - no specialty threads at all.

The two beaded eggs were done in the same manner. For the floral egg, I added a leaf bead with the 7th shared bead from the top, every 3rd join, so there's 5 of them altogether.

They are all beatiful! Really like the beaded ones. Looking forward to seeing more.

Great craftsmanship on those eggs -- you should be proud.

For many years I worked in a retail store that had a large craft department and I was in charge of stocking all the styrofoam shapes -- we sold a lot of styrofoam eggs this time of year.

P.S.: Thanks for the link, I just gave you a mutual one on my blogspot site.

Beautiful! The red and green turned out very nice.
