It was a great easter weekend! I went to visit my parents in PA for Easter this year and it was so much fun.
I love the traditions of Easter, and being home - made it especially fun to relive some of those traditions.
I come from a long line of crafty women and this Easter "Egg tree" is a perfect example of this.
It's covered in handmade ornaments, mostly made by my grandmothers and my mother. I think I helped with a few when I was little too.
My maternal grandmother made this Raggedy Ann egg - isn't it the cutest?
My mom and paternal grandmother made this egg - Look it's tatting! The flowers are tatted! I am so amazed at this. I never knew anyone who tatted (or at least I thought I hadn't) and seeing this egg was a real treat.
I was inspired by all this easter creativity and I decided to add to the egg tree with my own creation,. I knit a colorwork egg from this pattern... and added it to the collection. I hope to add to the tree every year.
It's not easter without an egg hunt....
We got lots of easter candy and plastic eggs and hid them all over the house. It's a good thing we counted the eggs before we hid them this year - because there have been years when we never found all the eggs! When my parents moved a few years ago, they found eggs with 20 year old candy inside! hehehe!
I think overdid the candy a bit... ok, a lot!
It's back on the wagon for me now that easter is over.
So - did anyone crack into a soda yet? I didn't. I am going to try to keep it going. Confession time - who cracked one open? Who made it the full 40 days? I promised presents for everyone who made it - so do tell! Include your email address in the comments if Blogger doesn't have it. I'll be contacting everyone who made it for their address.
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
