Hatching some eggs

I made up a second sheet of fabric in bright whites.  The piece with the flowers embroidered on it was sent to me in a fabric swap organized by the first group I took a class with.

If Lexxie visits my site... which I don't think she does ...she may remember this piece... look Lexxie!  I'm using it.  It is shiny and she loves shiny ... well, actually ...who doesn't? ..hahhaha... I think Magpie is the middle name of most women.
















I did the same thing I did when I was making the pin cushions.  Seeing as I just can't visualize things finished without a frame to view it in....I viewed it with my newly made egg template.  Perfect.  Now, I can work away on it ...inside stitched lines...but, always with my viewer nearby.  Grab. Place. View.

Love it....
















I decided to make several ...    in the same style as my cushions.

 Here is the first one so far.

V, this is so sweet. I love French knots. The lace in the center looks handmade.

Egg-shaped pincushions perhaps? (btw - I have to tell you that I smile every single time I see your header photo)

I found you frame idea over on Mary Ann's blog, and came over to see. These eggs are gorgeous and I like how the aperture lets you focus on the design. I love how you piece your lace together! Inspired to try this on a doll's bodice.
