Eggs and Ducks!

I must be feeling better, I can't sit still anymore, lol.
So, I made up some eggs this weekend with vintage embroideries.
These were fun to make and I like using color for these types, reminds me of the 50's. I had some old trim and used that to go around the outside edge.



I wanted to make some chicks for my baskets and decided to try my duck design. As you can see, my ducks are a bit sad looking, lol. I used my camel hair wool and think it would be fun to try smaller chicks and maybe brush the wool to get the fluffy look.

Your chicks are an old sweety and like your 'ducks' as they are. Brushed wool for chicks would look great. Everything is looking wonderful.

Your eggs are so sweet. I need to do something like this but I probably never will. I just can't seem to be as productive as the you.

Well aren't these all just too precious. I think you've inspired me to bring out the bunnies! Now that I am feeling better it is time to retire the snow people- bring on spring!!
