Is it Spring yet?


As I sit here watching snow falling quietly on my deck, I'm wondering where Spring is?  Regardless of the weather and the tricks it's playing on me, I decided to change out the house decor and usher spring in.  I've been busy crocheting some really cute Easter eggs for my tree (pattern below). I used the left over roses from Ari's wedding flowers to make a pretty little center piece for my kitchen table.  Now I have a reminder of a very special day!  



Easter Egg Pattern

Working in the round.  You may want to mark the beginning of each row.

  1. Awesome! These decorations make me so happy :)
    I probably won't get much more crocheting done in the next two months, but maybe next year...
    I especially love the bunny ears on the bear !
