Behold the Incredible Egg!

Ukranians have for centuries have created these incredible, inedible eggs called pysanky, drawing intricate designs on eggs utilizing a stylus and wax. Such detail! Aren’t they amazingly beautiful?

This is in my collection of eggs, of one that I add to every year. They are still handmade eggs which I believe come from Germany. I didn’t decorate for Easter this year as I have a beautiful white tree that I usually hang all these eggs on… maybe next year.

How about stitching with some Easter Grass by Kreinik? 9032 is the number in case you want to find some to add to your stash!

How about some baking? of course my favorite Easter dessert is a ricotta cheesecake! My Mom made it every year without fail and I especially loved the crust that was just like sugar cookies. Or lemon flavored rosettes or a ricotta rice pie or … I am making myself hungry.

A new orchid for Easter of which I need to thank my sister for! She had sent me a gift card to Adelaides for my birthday. See collecting orchids for me is like buying a new canvas, I look for a new combination of colors.

The cast and crew from Mutts are stopping by to wish you a Happy Easter!

As does AlleyCat! I am headed to La Jolla for breakfast at The Cottage and a little retail therapy. I will be back Monday morning hopefully with what I have decided and stitched on Leigh’s Russian Santa. I am waiting for a thread in the mail and I am sure it’s going to be here today.

Happy Easter and hopefully the Easter Bunny brings you everything you want!

and until next time…keep on stitching

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?

  1. Where can you purchase eggs similiar to the ones that you have. I really do like the two cats and I enjoy reading your blog every morning.

    • I purchase the eggs from Bowers Jewelers on Girard Ave in La Jolla, CA. They have quite a display every year and it is the highlight of the Easter season to look for the new eggs! Give ’em a call and I am sure that they would be delighted to assist you…

  2. I can’t believe there is a thread you need that Needle Nook doesn’t carry! Am waiting with baited breath for your beautiful Stitcherie canvas. BTW, the middle train car looks like a flat car. Hoppy Easter!
