Easter 'Woolie" Eggs


Here are a few of my wool Easter eggs. I made and sold these in the 90's, and I still get them out every year. They are made from vintage wool blankets. Blankets were plentiful and inexpensive then... not so these days. The grass green and the orange were favorites of mine. They made splendid carrots!


...embroidered details...


 

The teal blue eggs are the result of dying with plain old Ritz Dye...can you believe it? I remember that these little eggs sold very well at shows, and that a few family members were gifted a set for their Easter tables. They tell me they still get them out every year, too.

This time of year makes me think "pastels"...change is good for the soul...right?...even when it is a little bit out of your comfort zone.

Enjoy the evening,
Robyn

  8. I love these eggs... I made and sold some years ago but I think yours are much nicer. I don't decorate for Easter any more..maybe if I ever have grandkids?
    Glad you arrived safely back home :D
