'Cheerful Harvest'

I must admit that I am quite fond of celebrations, whether it be Christmas, Birthday's (especially my daughter's birthday's), Mother's Day, they all bring joy, and Easter is no exception.

I am particularly fond of all the gorgeous sparkly egg wrappers that dazzle their way into our shopping trolleys, and each year I make my own Hot Cross Buns, a beautiful recipe that leaves out all those disgusting little bugs everyone else calls mixed peel.
I am reminded each year, though, to reflect on the real reason we celebrate Easter and not to get caught up in the commercialism of the season, the price that was paid for all of us.

In celebration of new life I thought for my very first project for 2009 I would design some felt eggs, and here they are. Each egg has a different design embroidered around it, and all three are housed in an adorable little basket. I hope you like them.

I will also post them on my website as well, so they will be available to order.
