A Card for You, a Bunny, and More Eggs !


I hope you have a pleasant Easter holiday with your families. It’s a time to reflect on all of our Blessings. and to look forward to a new spirit of personal growth, as we witness the miracle of rebirth all around us with the coming of Spring!

I wanted very much to tat with my new Lizbeth thread (color 661), and it definitely lives up to all your praise! I am very impressed with its crispness! I quickly tatted up a simple cross, then decided to put it on a card to share with you.

Easter Bunny drops by !

I was excited that a sweet bunny stopped by long enough to be photographed with some beaded eggs that I added tatting to last year, but then added sparkly gems to this year!

The eggs came from Michaels and are 3-1/2 inches high. They are not only covered nicely with microbeads, but also have a variation of color from light to dark. Of course I bought as many eggs as I could last year, anticipating that they would not appear again this year, and I was correct. I'm disappointed about that, as they are of such a high quality, and there seem to be very few microbead eggs available on the internet. They each came with a small bow, which I removed so that I could fashion a fancier bow, and added flowers and some gold wire ribbon.

Just a quick post on this very special Holiday. Although it will only be 53 degrees today, I’m delighted to see sunshine and blue skies!

You might want to look at some "pysanky" sites on the web for some wonderful egg designs done in the Ukrainian tradition! I dabbled in this art years ago and will show some of those eggs on a future post!

Kathy, I LOVE what you did with those eggs! I never would've thought of putting tatting on eggs with microbeads on them. I'll bet there are some that have done it and NONE have turned out half as lovely as yours! You have such beautiful style! I love the way you embellish your tatting.
I wish we lived a little closer to each other! I'd love to come and do some tatting embellshing with you sometime if you did live closer.

Happy Easter to you and yours~ :)

Hi Kathy, Happy Easter to you and Ron!

Very Pretty Easter card and Easter Eggs. Love how you decorated the eggs.

I have decorated eggs in the pysanky style and it is a lot of fun. In fact, while I was at my Mom's today we saw some ladies on public tv demonstrating it. It made me want to get out my supplies and try decorating eggs in the pysanky stle again.

Hope you had a nice day!
