Crafting is Eggcellent!

About a month or so ago, I came across an amazing post on an incredible blog (paper-and-string) and was inspired to make some felt easter eggs!

I'd already been planning to make an Easter Tree, after some sunny days had put me in a cheery Spring mood.  I'd tried blowing eggs to paint, but they seemed a bit fragile (after I cracked one!) and I wanted something I could keep and bring out every year.  Colourful felt eggs was the perfect solution!

I got to work and created my version of the gorgeous paper-and-string eggs, and here they are:

Even better, when I showed them to the girls at work it started a crafting frenzy!  Here is a picture of our eggs all together so far (taken on a desk at work with a mobile phone camera!):

On the left we have Caz's 5 eggs, in the middle are my 6 eggs, then on the right are Dawn's 4 eggs.  All different interpretations, and all looking great together!  More eggs are in progress so there may be chance for another egg picture before Easter, and there will definitely be a picture of my completed Easter Tree when it is made/decorated!
