A New Family Tradition

On Easter, they felted the eggs, and it was very good.
The eggs came out as individual as the children who made them, and they are all beautiful. Child #1 had plans to needle a tiki design on his, but never got around to it. Child #2 made four plain colored eggs. Child #3 needled intricate designs on hers and didn't want to wet felt them afterward. Child #4 loved wrapping the yarn around some of them, but for her last egg, she needled eyes and a beak to make a little chick. Child #5 likes purple and rainbows and her eggs are decorated accordingly. I got to make a couple eggs as well, and I experimented with a little of this and that in between assisting the other artists. Best of all, we could leave them out on the table where we could enjoy them without letting them spoil. Blessed Easter to you all. Christ is alive! Alleluia! Alleluia!
